To help schools safely find, manage, and dispose of their mercury, EPA, states, and local communities have developed a number of educational videos for middle- and high-school students:

- Keep Your Paws Off Mercury - Clancy the mercury-detecting dog, EPA, and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency teamed up to create the Keep Your Paws Off Mercury campaign to teach students across the country about mercury and its dangers.
