Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution Lonnie Bunch, III highlighted the SSEC’s “COVID-19! How I Can Protect Myself and Others” module in an article from The Torch.
In the article, Bunch expresses how he’s “amazed by how quickly and holistically Smithsonian units acted to address the causes, transmission, and impact of COVID-19,” while noting the COVID-19 module. The module was designed in partnership with the World Health Organization, and helps students aged 8-17 understand the science of COVID-19 and viruses like it.
Since its launch, the module has reached over 53,000 students in 35 countries across the world.
