Your Environment. Your Health.

Environmental Health Science Education

Education outreach is a key mechanism for achieving the mission of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). The Environmental Health Science Education website provides educators, students and scientists with easy access to reliable tools, resources and classroom materials. It seeks to invest in the future of environmental health science by increasing awareness of the link between the environment and human health.

 

NIEHS teams up with Lowe's Grove Middle School in Durham, N.C. for "Healthy Lungs, Happy Living."

Integrated Curriculum

NIEHS supported the development of standards-based curricular materials that use environmental health as an integrative context for learning. The following list of materials address a wide range of academic subjects such as biology, health, civics, social studies, math, chemistry, and language arts. Many of these materials are being evaluated for their outcomes on student performance and teaching practices. Learn more about the program: EHSIC program .
