There is much “how to” information available online, for example from the
Environmental Protection Agency:


Links to further information can be found on DIY community and citizen
science focused websites such as these (and there are many others as well) [3] [4] [5]


On how to generate better quality data with sensors, see Josh’s post
above, it addresses the accuracy/precision issues quite well.  Thinking
about the use of such sensors for educational purposes, they could provide an
inexpensive way to get hands on experience measuring large numbers of data
points. Something that might be useful in teaching statistical concepts
critical for data analysis (maybe even an opportunity to consider the
statistics of experimental design).


Sensors of the type we are talking about and the data measurements they
generate probably need to be approached in different ways than more familair
laboratory instruments for chemical measurements.  To use them to generate
useful information might require approaches that include “numbering up”,
integrating with other data streams, and/or comparative measurements.
