Students use 'zombie science' to learn about disease spread

Posted: Updated:

A zombie apocalypse: Is it medically possible? Scenarios depicting large-scale attacks of the undead have been playing out on the big screen for years.

And this fall, they'll hit classrooms too.  

Students around the country can now immerse themselves in "zombie pandemics" in order to learn about how diseases spread and affect the body. It's all part of the new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Behind Hollywood Program, which teachers and students can download for free online to use at home or in the classroom.   

The series was created by Texas Instruments (TI) and The Science & Entertainment Exchange, a program of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), and seeks to inspire student's interest in math and science careers.  The STEM program will include installments on everything from forensics to zombies and superheroes.
