CDCM PHA STEM Lesson – Protecting our Lungs
In Protecting our Lungs, student scientists investigate the dangers of e-aerosols, the aerosols associated with e-cigarette smoking. Students create lung models, test the effect of inhalants on the lung model, and plan a health demonstration to educate others about the effects of e-cigarette aerosols.
Topics included in Protecting our Lungs:
- Nicotine addiction
- Dangers of e-cigarette aerosols
- Engineering design process
- Prototype design
- Scientific and health communication through demonstration
