Where's the Air?

It's a hot summer day and your car air conditioner breaks down. Do you just turn it off and roll down the windows, have it fixed at a local garage, or do you go out and buy a new car? How does your choice affect the protective stratospheric ozone layer?

This is one scenario you will find in the teacher's activity guide Where's the Air? brought to you by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources in collaboration with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. Where's the Air? is a fun and effective teaching aid for students to learn how ozone is formed, the difference between good ozone and bad ozone, and how social behavior affects air quality. It was created for educators and their students ages 10 and up.
