Program Details

Studying local air quality provides a perfect opportunity to engage your students in real-world science. Inside Education is here to help you take your weather, climate and environmental chemistry units to the next level! You will leave this program with the tools and resources needed to support meaningful air quality education and stewardship in your classroom and walk away with a new appreciation for the air we breathe!

Participating schools will receive:

 - An informative PD session where you will meet experts and expand your teaching network

- Use of the Temboo air quality monitor to collect information on air pollutants including PM2.5, temperature, and relative humidity so students can see the immediate effects of inversions, smoky skies, increases in school traffic, and more!

- Inside Education’s support to implement an education action project to improve air quality around the school (ie: idle-free campaign, carpool zones, tree planting project, etc.)
