Product Details

How clean is the air you breathe? In this hands-on kit, students will explore air pollution and discover just what types and amounts of particulates are found in local air. Students will have the opportunity to place observational slides in locations they think may have high amounts of particulates. Detailed observations about the particulates collected will then be recorded and studied. Kit includes a detailed teacher’s guide and enough materials for over 140 tests!


Materials Included in Kit: 
Avery labels, 2 sheets
Magnifier, plastic, dual lens, 15
