Summer Teacher Inservice
Urban Water: The Confluence of Human, Animal and Environmental Health
June 9-12, 2014
In partnership with K-State Olathe and One Health Kansas, the Urban Water Institute presented a summer teacher inservice to prepare 17 Kansas teachers to educate high school students about future health challenges and careers related to urban water issues, zoonotic infectious disease awareness and prevention, food safety and security and food science through existing units and/or courses in biology, chemistry, life science, environmental science, and Career and Technical Education agriculture, health, biochemistry, biomedical and engineering pathways.
Each participant received a resource kit to replicate several of the labs presented at the workshop.
Upon successful completion of all required program requirements, participants were eligible for one graduate credit from Kansas State University.
