Promoting simple, healthy living to reduce mosquito-borne diseases in our cities through FREE CA NGSS-aligned student science programs.
EcoHealth encourages students to take action to protect public health and the environment. The program’s scientific approach shapes how students think about the interdependent relationships between mosquitoes in our community and human health. The program is geared to all grades/age groups and is free to schools located within our District boundaries.
We Support Educators
Each program begins with one or more grade-appropriate Next Generation science standards.
All curriculum planned and implemented by Education Specialist. Sit back and enjoy the show with your students!
We Nurture Citizen Scientists
Each program has information about mosquitoes then moves on to one or more life science standards or an ecological topic using insects as models.
The Education Specialist highlights the importance of the preservation of habitats and species diversity and the role of invertebrates in nature, in human health and in the face of a rapidly changing planet.
