Mosquitoes (Mosquito Habitat Mapper) Resources

International Science Center and Science Museum Day Global Experiment

In the Global Experiment this year, science centers and science museums around the world, working together, can use this new mosquito application to begin to be part of the solution. They can train armies of citizen scientists to explore their households and neighborhoods and identify and eliminate potential mosquito breeding sites.

The GLOBE Zika Education and Prevention Project

The GLOBE Implementation Office is pleased to announce a new project in partnership with the United States Department of State. The GLOBE Zika Education and Prevention project is a global initiative, connecting citizen scientists around the world. Visit the webpage to find project information, digital resources, and a community gathering place for project participants. 

Smithsonian Science for Global Goals - Mosquito! Curriculum 

A new freely available curriculum developed by the Smithsonian Science Education Center in collaboration with the InterAcademy Partnership. It uses the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a framework to focus on sustainable actions that are student-defined and implemented. 

Precipitation Data and Mosquitoes Activity

A guide (PDF) to how to retrieve NASA satellite data about precipitation globally and in your region to explore correlations between rainfall and the onset of mosquito-borne diseases.

ZikaZapp Bingo (Instructions, Game Boards, Call Sheet)

An activity to build awareness of the many different breeding habitats used by container mosquitoes (30 categories are used in the Mosquito Habitat Mapper), as well as the four life cycle stages of a mosquito (egg, pupa, larva, and adult). The Mosquito Habitat Mapper focuses on the larva stage, but asks when taking a sample if mosquito eggs, pupa or adult mosquitoes are also found in the sample or site.

 

Mosquito Prevention and Control

A list of resources (websites and videos) to use when you are helping your visitors to learn about mosquito prevention and control.

Mosquito-Borne Diseases

A list of resources to learn more about mosquito-borne diseases. Many are from the World Health Organization and are available in English, French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese, and Arabic.

Case Studies - Connections to Satellite Data

Developed for the Global Precipitation Measurement Mission's Disease Initiative, these case studies illustrate the many ways in which NASA Earth-observing data is being used to predict, respond to, and better understand vector-borne and water-related disease.
