Teaching Children About Pollution With Puppets

By Amanda Harper
Published November 2006

In October, UC teamed up with the Environmental Protection Agency and ImagineNation to educate nearly 500 children and their families about air pollution as part of the 5th Annual Cincinnati Childhood Allergy and Air Pollution Study (CCAAPS) Family Picnic.

Fifteen-foot-tall puppets bobbled animatedly around stage to deliver kid-friendly messages about the causes and reduction of air pollution. Grace LeMasters, PhD, and James Lockey, MD, summarized recent CCAAPS findings and why they matter in daily life, and then offered practical advice for minimizing exposure risks.
