CDCM PHA STEM Lesson – COVID-19 Vaccination
In COVID-19 Vaccination, student scientists learn important facts about vaccines and how they can stop the spread of COVID-19. Students also learn how mRNA vaccines work to prevent infection. Students build a model that shows how viral spread occurs in populations with different percentages of vaccination coverage. Students then publish a story about how COVID-19 and vaccines have impacted their lives.
Topics included in COVID-19 Vaccination:
- mRNA vaccines
- Reproduction numbers (R0 and RT)
- Engineering design process
- Scientific and health communication
