Welcome to all of our
returning and new students! We are really excited about the year and
will be posting information about our new expedition soon.
Our Current Expedition
In this expedition students will explore both current and past epidemics. By investigating the viruses, bacteria, hosts and vectors that play key roles in the movement and spread of infectious diseases, students will be able answer what an epidemic is and the outbreak’s impact on systems. Through a partnership with USM's School of Public Health and the Center for Disease Control, students will develop curriculum around vector borne illnesses affecting the state of Maine.
