This lesson introduces students to the concepts of air pollution and technologies that have been developed by engineers to reduce air pollution. Students develop an understanding of visible air pollutants with an incomplete combustion demonstration, a "smog in a jar" demonstration, construction of simple particulate matter collectors and by exploring engineering roles related to air pollution. Next, students develop awareness and understanding of the daily air quality and trends in air quality using the Air Quality Index (AQI) listed in the newspaper. Finally, students build and observe a variety of simple models in order to develop an understanding of how engineers use these technologies to clean up and prevent air pollution. (less)

Poster showing a mule "Industry" kicking and snorting as it is bothered by flies "Unwise laws," and "Tax," and its food is infested with bugs, rat "Waste," and snake "Agitation." Title continues: If our good mule "Industry" were made National Food Dictator he would urge your appetite to do without unwise business laws, wasteful agitation, excessive taxation and labor strife, in the interest of America's industrial health. He would also urge the unrestricted use of harmony, co-operation and fair public opinion towards business men, for he knows that he himself needs these foodstuffs, if he is to do his full bit in the trenches and keep his strength for the trade war which will follow the restoration of peace. Give "Industry" a show as a food dictator. Caption: A poor meal for a good mule. Issued by the National Industrial Conservation Movement, 30 Church Street, New York City. Copies supplied on request.

Learners observe and discuss a vacuum cleaner as a model of a baghouse, a device used in cleaning industrial air pollution. In this demonstration, learners observe the inside of a used vacuum cleaner bag to see how it filters and collects particles. This activity can be combined with other activities to form a larger lesson on pollutant recovery methods. Resource contains suggestions for assessment, extensions, and scaling for different levels of learners. (less)
