Students will investigate several aspects of the environmental quality of their school — indoor air quality, mercury and chemical management, cleaners and volatile organic compounds, and how transportation used to get to and from school affects air pollution and students’ health.
The results of the investigation will inform school staff and students of ways they can make improvements to provide a cleaner, greener, and healthier learning environment for all.
