They work closely with affiliates Canam Building Envelope Specialists and Pure Air Control Services to address indoor air quality issues quickly and effectively through air barrier audits, building envelope testing, continuity systems, indoor environmental testing, HVAC remediation, building and room decontamination, and more.
Additionally, Tremco is a long-time awarded vendor partner with AEA Purchasing, helping schools safe money on the materials they need for facility improvements.

Lorax Learning with Imagined Plants
With inspiration from Dr. Suess during the month of his birth, students create a new plant species and imagine its importance within an ecosystem. These small assemblage sculptures can illustrate the physical properties of existing plants or be entirely new creations. Get inspired to fill a classroom “garden” or offer at a one-of-a-kind “plant sale”, all the while becoming informed about the timeless ecological message shared in The Lorax. Full lesson plan details and materials list are available at dickblick.com/lesson-plans/imagined-plants.
All materials may be purchased from Blick Art Materials under the AEA Purchasing contract. If ordering directly from Blick, remember to enter promo code QD20AEP during checkout.
