Richard David Gragg III: Fundamental of Environmental Science at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University The Lead in the Environment module was implemented in Fundamentals of Environmental Science, an introductory-level course for non-majors with approximately 30 students. The module materials and activities increased my capacity to provide a rich reflective participatory learning experience linking science to existing health and public policy issues.

Caryl E Waggett: ES 415: Environmental Health at Allegheny College The Lead in the Environment module was implemented in my advanced-level course in environmental health, which allows students to explore a variety of representative cases—heavy metal contamination, vector-borne diseases, the health effects of the built environment. The module provided an opportunity to conduct a deep exploration of lead in the environment and in humans, and how it gets there—but it also included an equally deep exploration of the challenges of managing risk for an individual family, community, or the country as a whole.
