 Calling All Students: COVID-19 Conversation for Kids and Teens

​Over the past year of the COVID-19 pandemic, scientists and medical professionals have been grappling to understand the science of this novel virus, how it spreads and how to manage it through public health guidelines, vaccine development and distribution. It can feel like information overload, especially for kids and teens. 

The San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering is offering a workshop in English and Spanish on Tuesday, April 27 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. that will break down the complexity of COVID-19 into an engaging, casual conversation starting with an experiment with germs and washing hands. The session will be viewable on the festival’s live stream stage

Educators are welcome to thread this opportunity with their curriculum and encourage students to attend. If your class or students cannot watch the discussion live, it will be recorded and posted soon afterwards so they can see if their questions got answered during the talk.

Questions submitted by youth before the event would be greatly appreciated by the the panelists, so that they can gear their presentation towards topics that youth are most interested in. Students can submit their questions in English or Spanish.

The session will be offered in English and Spanish. Learn more.
