Live Distance Learning Program: Natural Disasters and Health
The Challenger Learning Center at Wheeling University is inviting teachers and their students to help in evaluating our new live simulation, Natural Disasters and Health.
During this 90-minute activity, middle school students perform as medical officers in realistic simulations of natural disasters. The Challenger Learning Center at Wheeling University will connect live to your school for a 90 minute immersive distance learning program. The students will triage, transport, diagnose and treat injured patients in disaster zones.
Students learn what causes these natural events, the medical injuries they cause, and how the injured are provided medical care at disaster sites and in emergency rooms. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) funds this project with the goals of training students in body systems and alerting youth to excellent career opportunities.
- Minimum of 1 year of experience teaching middle school science or health (grades 6-8)
- Minimum class size of 18 students. Multiple classes permitted.
- Teacher compensation of $150
- Free simulation worth $400
