        Reducing Indoor Air Pollution

        In this STEM activity from Cyberchase, students learn that plants can be used to help reduce indoor air pollution and make the air healthier to breathe. In the accompanying classroom activity, they use ratios and estimation to determine the number of plants needed to decrease the indoor air pollution in a room.

        Extend the learning with the related Cyberchase at-home activity Design Your Own Plant Superhero.
