Now with the school year and classroom routines well underway, it’s content time! Here are some excellent additions to your S.T.E.A.M. curriculum. Enjoy!

A new school year, a new immersive, interactive educational experience...

We were awarded a grant from the Entomological Society of America (ESA) to create an education tool exploring the fascinating path West Nile virus must traverse to move from host to host via the Culex mosquito. Beautifully illustrated, this project bridges a significant gap in available material covering the transmission of West Nile Virus a threat to public health each year in the San Gabriel Valley.

Please! We’d like your students’ feedback (Grades 4-12) on this project. All they have to do is complete the experience! Your students’ anonymous assessment of the project will be included in the ESA presentation. Explore the intersection of entomology, virology, and public health with Journey of the Germ:
