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
  • Filtration
  • Engineering design process
  • Prototype design
  • Scientific and health communication through demonstration
