Despite major news coverage of ebola, many student learners and adults may still know very little about disease transmission and epidemics. Howtsmile.org activities that model how infectious diseases spread, how medical detectives investigate them, and how disease transmission can be blocked increase understanding of health risks to both individuals and large populations.
Howtosmile.org is an online tool that allows educators to search, collect, and share high-quality, hands-on science and math activities. Collections include inquiry-based learning resources from the Lawrence Hall of Science, Exploratorium, Science Museum of Minnesota, Children's Museum of Houston, New York Hall of Science, and ASTC. Major funding was provided by the National Science Foundation from award #0735007. No endorsement of this website or its content is granted or implied by the use of the 4-H emblem or the logos of other collection sources.
Additional support was provided by Oracle and The Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation for the creation of STEM topic pages.
