OnAir Schools is a new program of the Alliance, a STEM-aligned initiative that inspires preK-12 students to take the lead on classroom campaigns and student challenges to reduce traffic and air pollution at their school. Using a digital platform to plan, implement and measure, students can engage their entire school community in taking actions that help save the air.
How many pounds of pollution can your school community take out of the air through clean air actions? The AirCreds challenge is a custom challenge and measurement tool that you can use to quantify the difference your school is making for the environment. Members of your school community can log their clean air actions, such as walking to school, buying local food, running an educational workshop, planting a tree, and more.
