BAAQMD Introduces New Air Quality Education Curriculum.

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) recently announced it has launched, under a grant from Agilent Technologies, the "Clean Air Challenge," a new science-based curriculum designed to teach local students about the dangers of ground-level ozone.

According to BAAQMD, a voluntary one-day workshop will instruct teachers on how to use and incorporate the clean air curriculum in the classroom and provide the required educational tools.

"Introducing air quality issues to teens is an important element of the Air District's program," said BAAQMD executive officer Jack Broadbent. "The Clean Air Challenge is a creative approach that raises awareness about the causes and health effects of ozone, and teaches students the importance of air quality."
