CAPCO Has a Booth at Science Teachers Conference

More than 1,000 teachers stopped by the CAPCO booth at the National Science Teachers Association's National Conference in Philadelphia to learn about aerosol products. The booth's theme invited teachers to "Use Aerosol Technology to Teach Scientific Principles," and CAPCO representatives explained how they could download a teacher's kit with 16 classroom activities and the popular educational video Another Awesome Aerosol Adventure from the CAPCO web site www.AerosolProducts.org.

Many of the teachers asked questions about the environmental and recycling aspects of aerosol products and were pleased with CAPCO's answers. The teachers also took advantage of fact sheets and pamphlets providing information about aerosol products, and more than 1,600 samples of travel sizes of Sprayway Glass Cleaner, WD40 Pens, and Spot Shot Carpet Stain Remover were given away.

The booth's graphics and handouts promoted CAPCO web sites www.AerosolProducts.org and www.EcoAerosols.com as sources of information about aerosol products that could be used to teach scientific principles. In addition to the teacher's kit and free video, www.AerosolProducts.org has numerous fact sheets about aerosol products and the environment. EcoAerosols.com is an interactive educational site that makes for entertaining homework assignments that help students learn environmental facts.

If you haven't already done so, check out the CAPCO web sites. You'll learn a lot and have fun doing it.
