Hands-on air quality and climate program that empowers climate action!

The Clean Air Responsible Schools  - C.A.R.S.  - program aims to develop an understanding of air quality, greenhouse gas emissions, and climate change, with an emphasis on science data collection and personal action. This program will engage students in a local stewardship action and empower them to be the agents of change for GHG reductions at your school by collecting meaningful data with your very own air quality sensor!

Through this program, students will see that personal action can make a difference in their schools and local communities!

The CARS program in 2023 will be delivered as a 4 part program including a

  • Air Quality and Climate Teacher professional development program - Feb 22, 2023
  • Classroom presentation tailored to your grade level
  • Use of the Temboo air quality monitor to collect information on air pollutants including CO2, temperature, and relative humidity so students can see the immediate effects of inversions, smokey skies, increases in school traffic, and more!
  • Implementation an fully supported education action project to improve air quality around the school (ie: idle-free campaign, carpool zones, tree planting project, etc.)

Inside Education’s work brings us to all corners of the province, as such, we acknowledge the Indigenous people who lived among and traveled through the land in the area currently known as Alberta. The relationship the Peoples of Treaty 6, Treaty 7, and Treaty 8 and Alberta’s Métis people have with the land is founded on a deep respect for the environment. This connection forms the foundation of our personal responsibility for the stewardship of our natural resources, a connection Inside Education strives to foster among students and teachers through our diverse programming.
