STEM Careers Coalition: Staying Informed

How can we inform the public of environmental health risks?

Students examine the health risks associated with climate change. They will identify two key risks as well as what the public can do to maintain their health despite these hazards. Students will ultimately create a design for an app that communicates this health information.
