Banana Pandemic!

Average rating:4.8Number of reviews:(274)
In this silly session, we will learn about the historical and current banana epidemic, what is going on scientifically, and destroy some bananas for banana bread!

Class experience

Students will learn about pathogenic fungus, monocultures, genetic diversity, pandemics, current scientific research, and how to smash bananas at an age appropriate level.
I studied and researched infectious disease at Emory and Harvard Universities.  I have a Bachelors of Science in Anthropology & Human Biology with a double in Biology.  I love teaching students about disease, especially when it's as silly as banana pandemics!
Students have the option to destroy bananas at the end of class.  Please put them in a place they can get messy and give them safe tools to smush bananas.  I recommend you make banana bread afterwards.
