Cincinnati Museum Center, June 27-July 1, Aug 1-5, 2022

CEC collaborates with the Museum Center to offer Kid-friendly Environment Health Camps.

In summer 2022, the CEC hosted two weeks of Environmental Health Camps for children in grades 5-6 at the Museum Center. Building upon the success of its inaugural camps in 2018 and 2019, the CEC collaborated with the Museum Center to offer fun and creative lessons to teach children about leas contamination, air pollution, water contamination, and food contamination.

A few highlights include children building air sensors, being food borne illness detectives, and creating a basic version of the first few steps of the Greater Cincinnati Water Works filtration process. The camps were facilitated by CEC Co-leader Michelle Burbage and CEC coordinator Amy Itescu. Activities were led by MPH, Epidemiology, and College of Medicine students.
