The Clean Air Program for Elementary Students (CAPES) is South Coast AQMD’s educational program for elementary students. The goal of CAPES is for students to learn about the importance of air quality, the impact of air pollution, and actions students can take to improve the environment. Students will be equipped to make healthier, clean air choices.

Educators are provided with short videos and a curriculum kit that includes lesson plans, worksheets, and answer keys.  South Coast AQMD recognizes the diverse needs of schools and CAPES is designed to provide educators with the flexibility in implementing the curriculum. Support is available upon request.
