EEOP Services

Educational Services:
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Building Assessments:
The EEOP program has IAQ Kits and staff available to work with students and teachers to complete an IAQ assessment of their school building. The instruments in the IAQ Kit facilitate air quality measurements such as carbon dioxide, radon, carbon monoxide, relative humidity, air movement, surface temperature, moisture, etc. The staff will also help students and teachers use the USEPA IAQ Tools for Schools kit to identify potential air quality issues.
There are three key components of the IAQ Building Assessments:



The data and observations collected during the Building Assessment will be provided to the school administration for their information and action. This is an educational program, not a regulatory program. Only the school staff receives the assessment reports.

The building assessments can be done in a variety of formats. The one requirement is that teachers and students from the school district be involved in the assessment; the EEOP staff does not do the assessment for your school, the staff helps the teachers and students do the assessment.

Engineering Outreach Program (EOP):
The EEOP program has Engineering Education Kits and staff available to work with students and teachers to increase awareness of opportunities in engineering. Although engineering is applied science, mathematics, and technology many students are not aware of the career opportunities for this fascinating field. The purpose of the Engineering Outreach Program is to increase awareness of engineering as a potential career and help students understand how they can prepare for an exciting career in engineering.

The EEOP staff is available to work with teachers and students to develop an understanding of engineering and to encourage students to consider engineering as a career option.





Wildlife In Native Schools:
The EEOP staff will be working with the US Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station with a focus of "More Children in the Woods." During forest visits to the Fort Valley Research Forest (near NAU campus) students will be introduced to forest management, ecology, wildlife and environmental issues through hands on activities. Topic areas will focus on forest management, biodiversity, land stewardship, wildlife management, basic ecological principles, related career opportunities, and the effects of good or poor air, water, and soil quality on ecosystems.

Middle schools and high schools from Northern Arizona will be invited to participate in this program. Transportation scholarships are available to the schools outside the Flagstaff city limits.

American Indian Mobile Educational Resources (AIMER):
The AIMER classroom is a mobile computer laboratory that is used to teach concepts of physics, astronomy, and engineering to K-12 students. The EEOP staff will be available to conduct hands on classroom presentations on topics such as:


Community Star Parties allow the community members to get involved in the AIMER program. Star Party participants will have an opportunity to view stars, planets, and moons through several different telescopes.

Water Education and Outreach:
The purpose of the Water Education and Outreach Program is to increase hydrological literacy and spark interest of students in hydrological careers. The EEOP staff will provide learning activities and demonstrations of various water curriculums, including GLOBE and Project WET. Some lessons and activities available are:


We are currently experiencing a drought in the Southwest. We want all citizens to be aware of the issues associated with the drought and help with protection and management of our water resources.

The EEOP staff also has water education supplies available on a loan basis.

Air Quality Education:
Air pollution comes from many different sources such as factories, power plants, dry cleaners, cars, buses, trucks and even windblown dust and wildfires. Air pollution can threaten the health of human beings, trees, lakes, crops, and animals, as well as damage the ozone layer and buildings. Air pollution also can cause haze, reducing visibility in national parks and wilderness areas. The EEOP staff is available to work with students, educators, and tribal professionals to create more awareness of the career opportunities in protecting human health and ecosystems from air pollution. Some lessons and activities available are:
