The aim of this project is to investigate and predict the quantified effect of indoor environment on pupils’ health in schools in Norway during the COVID-19 pandemic. The results are based on field measurements of the indoor environment in a Norwegian school. In addition, a survey (Mitt Inneklima) from NAAF was given to the pupils, and the result was investigated by using a machine learning model. From the field measurements it was found that the indoor temperature was generally too high, the relative humidity was too low, and the CO2- concentration was typically below 1000 ppm. The survey shows that more pupils are experiencing various indoor climate problems every week compared to the reference school for almost all of the parameters. By using machine learning, it is found that Too hot is an important feature for 11 of the 12 health problems, while Dry air is an important feature for nine of them.
