An environmental research project was carried out by a consortium established among scientists and university lecturers in collaboration with two high schools. High school students participated in a long-term study of the local temporal profiles of tropospheric ozone and the relationship to pollution and meteorological parameters. Low-cost research facilities for the high schools were obtained from public funds. The experimental setup provided a continuous source of data that was followed by the students under the supervision of the teachers. The participation was multidisciplinary (across various classes) and included activities related to the atmospheric study. The experience was motivating for students, providing them with a practical contact with science and the university. (Contains 2 notes, 1 table and 3 figures.)
