The author talks about his constructed tabletop version of a life-size smokestack that safely demonstrated the dispersion of air contaminants along with its additional features for successful indoor adaptation. He mentions the three primary components of air pollution systems which include emission sources, the atmosphere and receptors of contaminants. He believes that the demonstration of stack model had encouraged students in active learning of the fundamentals of air dispersion.
