PSA

This page is an online venue to showcase public service announcements created by high school students about environmental (and other science-based) issues in their community and across the nation. We call them PSAs - Public Science Announcements.

The first in this series was created by my 2015-2016 Grade 10 Chemistry class about lead pollution. Click on the link below to view their videos.
