To develop a deeper understanding of infectious diseases, where they are found, how they are transferred, and how they can be controlled, students engage in a school-wide research activity. Students create a plan for tracking and identifying common sources of transmission of microorganisms and design, implement, collect, and present data over the course of several weeks. At the culmination of the project, students devise a plan of action to reduce contagious illnesses and promote a healthier school environment.
