Nine year old Angel attends Breathe California’s O24u class as part of the Discovery Museum Science and Space Center’s summer camp. In 024u he learns about the sources and effects of air pollution; renewable and non-renewable energy sources; and the benefits of natural cleaning products to reduce indoor air pollution. Angel says the most useful thing he learned in O24u is to “use baking soda, water or vinegar to clean and to not use chemical cleaners like Windex which pollutes the air.” Angel suggests that people “walk, ride a bike, or have an electric car to clean the air.” According to Angel, clean air is important so we can breathe oxygen instead of carbon dioxide. In the future, he would like to see a machine that collects all the smog, smoke and pollution, as well as more trees, plants and flowers. Angel’s favorite thing to do when he’s not at summer camp is to build imaginary worlds in the video game, Minecraft.
