Host‌ ‌a‌ ‌Clean‌ ‌Air‌ ‌Fair‌ ‌-‌ ‌Fun,‌ ‌Interactive‌ ‌Air‌ ‌Quality‌ ‌Education‌ ‌Featuring‌ ‌Puppets!‌ ‌

We’re excited to tell you about a special, free educational opportunity available to enhance youth STEAM programming: The Group Against Smog and Pollution (GASP) is partnering with local puppeteer Dave English to offer Clean Air Fairs in Pittsburgh and across southwestern Pennsylvania.

Clean Air Fairs are flexible educational opportunities to help school-age students better understand local air quality.

Clean Air Fairs can be customized to best fit your organization’s needs. Fairs can be structured either as a presentation or as a drop-in fair with activity tables. The presentation, featuring GASP’s air quality educator and English with his puppets, covers topics like our region’s history with air quality, ways to learn about air quality (monitoring, bioindicators, etc), and air’s impact on health.

The drop-in activity fair is a great fit for a local park or in combination with another event – children will interact with the puppets as well as air quality education activities, like learning about air quality’s effect on the respiratory system using real pig lungs.

To learn more about partnering with GASP on a Clean Air Fair, contact Laura Kuster at laura@gasp-pgh.org or fill our the form below. Does your school, library, or community program want to borrow our grab-and-go Air Quality Education Kits instead or in addition to a Clean Air Fair? Visit www.gasp-pgh.org/kits

GASP’s Clean Air Fairs and education kits are made possible by funding from the Allegheny County Clean Air Fund and the Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) Environmental Education Grants Program.
