Girl’s Work on Air Quality is Lesson for All (Archive Fee Required)

by Andrea Ciccocioppo

Excerpt:
Seventh-grader Shannon Greenbaum recently confronted two of her fears: the quality of the air and public speaking.
Shannon, a pupil at Yellow Breeches Middle School in Boiling Springs, enjoys spending time outdoors. Like many other kids her age, she rides her bike and runs, never thinking about what she’s taking into her body every time she draws a breath.
But that changed after her mother, Susan, showed her the Web site http://www.air now.gov, which has data compiled from across the nation on air quality. Measurements of ozone and particulate matter are collected from areas, including the Carlisle region.
