Air Pollution Expert Visits Grade 1!
Continuing with the research for their service learning project, Grade 1 invited an air pollution expert to speak to the class. On Wednesday morning, Dr. Jia Li came to speak to the Grade 1 class! Dr. Li is an environmental economist with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). She spoke about her collaboration working with the Nepali government on climate change and air pollution.
Students had the opportunity to ask and answer many questions about air pollution and even found out some more things the Nepali government is working on to try to improve air quality. It was awesome to learn from another expert and get more ideas for what our class can do to help solve this problem!
