Mosquitos y Yo: Teaching students to explore

With Lyric Bartholomay, Ph.D., Co-director, Midwestern Center of Excellence for Vector-Born Disease; Assoc. Professor, Department of Pathobiological Science

Event Details

Tuesday, October 29, 2019
5-6 p.m.
Bartholomay will discuss the project that teaches upper elementary and middle school students about mosquitoes with hopes that they will take their knowledge back to families and communities. Started in Iowa, Bartholomay is using a Global Health Institute Seed Grant to expand the project in Ecuador, a country that’s been hard hit by mosquito-transmitted diseases. The project encourages children’s curiosity and invites them to experiment to learn more.
