Online Learning Modules: The Science of COVID-19

Posted by Penn State Center for Science and the Schools on February 9, 2021

Penn State Center for Science and the Schools (CSATS) is excited to announce that we have developed online learning modules, The Science of COVID-19, along with experts in virology, epidemiology, agent-based modeling, and public health preparedness. This introductory course allows secondary students to learn about COVID-19 through the lenses of three distinct scientific fields while engaging in the practices of scientists to understand how researchers investigate and take action against a new virus. The course is made up of three self-paced modules: 1) virology, 2) epidemiology, and 3) public health preparedness. Teachers can determine which aspects of the course are most appropriate for their students. The modules do not need to be completed in order and the use of the course is flexible. When teachers register, they gain access to resources that they can modify to support the use of this course in their classrooms.
