Predicting and Avoiding Outbreaks of West Nile Virus

How can we predict and avoid future outbreaks of West Nile Virus? In this Spark 101 case challenge, students will help UT Southwestern Medical Center, a medical center that is focused on improving health care in communities throughout Texas and the United States, figure out how to determine and identify variables that will help predict when epidemic outbreaks will occur. To solve this challenge, students will use critical thinking and mathematical skills to determine the best way to calculate risk.
