Abstract: 

The EPA has developed "The Air Quality Workshop for Teachers: A Toolkit for Facilitators," designed to help K-12 teachers better understand air pollution issues and related health effects, experience hands-on activities, and gain insights into global warming and climate change, calculating a carbon footprint, and the health effects of air pollution. The toolkit includes everything needed for a workshop: agendas, hands-on activities, power point slides, recruitment notice, and more. Just change the logo, add your personal touch, and you are ready to begin!

This Toolkit is designed for anyone who would like to conduct an air quality workshop for teachers. The materials are taken directly from the workshop provided each year by the US Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. The knowledge gained will support the teacher's classroom instruction and in turn will motivate and increase student's interest in air quality.
