About 20 local science teachers are at UC Irvine this week and next to learn about atmospheric chemistry as part of the AirUCI Summer Teacher Workshop. UCI researchers share their knowledge about air quality, climate change, car emissions and other topics with the participants, who in turn take the information back to their 7th- through 12th-grade classrooms. Goals are to connect with the local teaching community and increase student interest in science. Researchers with AirUCI study topics ranging from indoor air purifiers to the effects of sea salt on urban smog formation.
