1) What’s Hiding in our Air?

“Wow! We need to stop running cars!”- Grade 5/6 Class
“My students enjoyed going outside to test the air quality. They were very interested in the world map that showed the quality of air quality in various countries.”

2) Eating Our Way to Brighter Skies

Explores the relationship between air quality and composting, inspiring students to find realistic ways that they can minimize food waste. A 45-minute presentation offered in Grades 1-6 classrooms, this presentation uses an interactive poster to foster critical thinking about our food cycle.

“I loved the interactive poster, so did the children!”
“It’s relevant to the curriculum as well as the ‘life choices’ we are teaching children.”


3) Food Waste: Local choices and global impacts

60-minute interdisciplinary presentation for Grades 7-12 that connects our local choices around organic waste disposal to the global impacts of climate change. Contemporary art is used as a medium to encourage youth to imagine alternatives for a more sustainable world.
