KAIRE offers local teachers our School Mates package – a standards-based unit of study focusing on air pollution, and the environmental impact of our choices. Subject areas covered are science, environmental studies, health and practical living.
CLAIRA is an interactive exhibit which allows students to see how their driving habits and buying choices affect the amount of pollution emitted by their vehicles. CLAIRA was created from the body of a Volkswagen Beetle, which gives students the opportunity to actually sit in the driver’s seat.
