School is now in full swing and APCD has several resources and tools to help local teachers, program coordinators and parents! 

The Clean Air Ambassadors Program is a team of dedicated Cal Poly students that work for the APCD and are passionate about environmental education and inspiring future generations. The program is FREE to all educators and childcare programs. 

Their fun and interactive lessons are geared for grades K-3 and 4-6. Each lesson is part of a 3-lesson series that supplements numerous California Science Content Standards and EEI Standards. While they focus on air quality and pollution, they also promote environmental literacy and sustainable practices.
