Community Science Water Analysis Workshop:

The Vector Inspector Program (VIP) receives hundreds of water samples each year from San Gabriel Valley elementary students. Whether it's a whole class or a small science club, put your students' science skills to work for public health!


Students will learn how to identify aquatic organisms in water samples  and report findings.


  • Obtain parent permission

  • Must have lab space with functional microscopes

The West Nile virus group activity leads students though puzzles to solve a public health mystery. Students must use the evidence presented to identify the host, vector, pathogen, and the environmental factors leading to the outbreak.

Materials required:

  • Printed handouts

  • Printed worksheets

  • Large envelopes/folders to contain documents

Teacher Survey

Journey of the Germ is an animated and interactive video that details how West Nile virus is spread from host to host by a mosquito. The experience illustrates the surprising difference a few degrees in temperature can make in the spread of West Nile virus.

Can something be done to stop the germ in its tracks? Follow the journey of the germ to find out!
