We’ll bring our science programs to you.
We partner with school districts to support science learning. We offer district-wide elementary, middle, and high school programs, either virtually or in-person.
We collaborate with a range of partners to innovate in science education. Together, we go further.
Indoor air quality—the air quality within and around homes, buildings, and other structures—affects our health and comfort just as outdoor air quality does. In this month’s Midday Science Cafe, we bring you two experts who are studying the impacts of indoor air pollution from two different perspectives. We’ll hear from Dr. Laura Kwong, who focuses on developing engineering solutions that address public health issues in low-income communities, including those related to air pollution from cookstoves in refugee camps. We’ll also hear from Dr. Xiaochen Tang, who studies the impacts of first- and second-hand vaping—inhaling aerosolized liquid produced by an e-cigarette—debunking one of the misleading messages from vaping advocates that there are no secondhand exposures.
