Smart Health: Skin Cancer Research for Middle School Students

Hi All,

Dr. Marty McCarthy, iCollaboratory and several others organizations are applying for a  grant that will become a project focusing on  "Smart Health."  The project focus is 10-18 year olds learning about skin cancer and prevention.
 
We need devoted middle school classes in Northern Illinois to be part of the in-person study  for this project.  Idealy we would like to include Science, Writing, Physical Education, Health Ed and/or Technology. If the project ran in 4-6 week segments, that would probably be ideal.
 
We are still working out the curriculum and would like input from the middle schools as well as a school and district level commitment to participate in the coming school year.

Please let me know if your school is interested by sending email to icollaboratory@gmail.org.
 
Thank you,
Bonnie Thurber
