EnviroMysteries About Us
  Dear Educator,

Maryland Public Television and the Environmental Health Sciences Center at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health are proud to offer EnviroMysteries, a collection of video, online, and print materials that help students explore and make informed judgments about the environmental health problems we face today.

This project is supported by a generous grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (Grant#: 1 R25 ES10700-01). With this support, we were able to develop these resources:

  • Water + ? = Trouble.
    In this video, students met a group of young television journalists who are chronicling the local health department's investigation of a waterborne illness.
  • Breaking the Mold.
    This video drama focuses on indoor air pollution and its health effects when the cast of a reality show have to deal with a moldy environment.
  • Inside Stories.
    In this online interactive, students explore a variety of environmental concerns while helping the staff of Reps, a local community fitness center, find ways to solve problems that could close this important community hub.

These resources are accompanied by standards-based lesson plans and reproducible activities, implementation tips, and detailed background information to help you and your students explore the intersection between our environment and our health.

We trust you and your students will find these resources helpful, engaging, and informing.
