What is SCREAM?
SCREAM is a web-based curriculum enhancement designed to teach high school students about the interaction between genetics and the environment in determining cancer risk.
The Community Outreach and Education Program of the Center for Research on Environmental Disease of M. D. Anderson Cancer Center Science Park - Research Division has designed a web-based curriculum enhancement to teach high school students about environmental factors associated with increased cancer risk. The module is called SCREAM, an acronym for Student Cancer Research Education Assessment Module. Teacher interns working in collaboration with faculty from the CRED have developed the module. It contains current scientific information about risk and prevention along with interactive, animated learning exercises, virtual experiments, supplemental lesson plans, and self-tests. The intention is to improve environmental science education in Texas and to encourage students to make healthy lifestyle choices based on factual information, including reduction of sun exposure, avoidance of tobacco and improvement of diet.
