On behalf of the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Drive Clean Texas (DCT) would like to thank the following individuals and organizations for their thoroughly and thoughtfully produced educational material.

DCT personnel searched the nation's wealth of air quality education material and selected a number of high quality units and lessons to use in the creation of the DCT curriculum. As a campaign funded by TxDOT we searched for material relevant to transportation-related air quality. Many of these lessons are presented as they were originally conceived. However, in an effort to localize the air quality curriculum to Texas and to better fit the lessons to DCT campaign messages, some changes have been made. We invite you to visit the websites listed below for original content. The individuals and organizations below have also been credited within the lessons where appropriate.
