For Schools

“Mercury: An Educator's Toolkit” is a two-disc DVD and CD package that contains a variety of activities, educational videos, and other information designed to enhance students' understanding of mercury and its potential health hazards.

Toolkits are available to teachers in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. For more information or to get a free copy of the toolkit, contact Denise Morrison, Office of Public Affairs.

We want feedback from schools that have used the Toolkit.
