for centuries humans wondered but didn’t

00:03
know what was the cause of infectious
00:06
diseases was it due to poison witchcraft
00:11
bad air it took until the end of the
00:14
nineteenth century for us to discover
00:16
the germ theory of disease so what’s the
00:20
big idea
00:21
with omega infectious science we want to
00:26
inspire students and we want to connect
00:29
them with vaccine experts with inventors
00:32
with Nobel Prize winners through
00:35
technology in the classroom in this
00:39
series of ten lessons we explore the
00:42
science the principles of observation of
00:44
experimentation ethics and history as
00:47
well and we can understand how we
00:49
protect ourselves and our families and
00:51
communities against a host of infectious
00:54
diseases
00:55
[Music]
00:57
we want to teach and learn high quality
01:01
science so that you can understand
01:03
science you can even be a scientist and
01:06
use science in everyday life who knows
01:10
one day you could change the world
