CDC Museum Public Health Academy STEM Lessons

←Back to list of resources
The STEM Lessons aim to educate students about public health issues through the integration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The lessons offer inquiry-based, hands-on activities that allow students to work either in teams or independently. They are designed to be used by different audiences including educators and students and are ideal for middle and high school students.

Each lesson’s activities use one of three models:
1. Engineering Design Process (Students will solve a public health problem by designing and building a solution.)
2. Scientific Method (Students will conduct an experiment to evaluate a hypothesis.)
3. Public Health Approach (Students will use epidemiologic principles to investigate and address health issues.)

The CDC Museum offers the full lesson, along with three supplementary documents: a slide set for educators, an instruction sheet for students, and a data collection sheet for students. The slide sets are in the public domain and may be downloaded and customized as needed by the user for informational or educational purposes.
