NOAA Air Quality presented by E-Corps own Environmental Scientist Wendy Foster. The goal of the workshop is for K-12 educators to gain a better understanding of air quality and air pollution issues, experience hands-on activities, and gain insight into topics such as climate change, calculation of a carbon footprint, and the potential health effects of air pollution. The knowledge gained will support the teacher’s classroom instruction and in turn will motivate and increase student’s interest in air quality. Brunch Meal is included
