Each participating teacher will receive a kit that contains a fuel cell car kit, lab materials for measuring particulate matter, lung capacity materials, spot plates, curriculum lessons and a DVD with downloadable activities from the new Mojave Desert Air Quality Management District’s
“The Adventures of Parti & Ozi” an engaging combination live action/animated lesson plan series, which is designed to help connect students to the actual size of particulate matter and understand other pollutants they might possibly be exposed to, and how their density and concentration can dramatically impact their world.
