Understanding: STEM Perspectives

These presentations explore the nature and effects of COVID-19 through the STEM disciplines.

Essential Question
Why can’t we go back to ‘normal’ without a vaccine?

This COVID-19 talk is meant for people who are already familiar with most aspects of the virus and the policies directed at preventing it from growing. In this brief talk, I hypothesize that due to the threat of the reinfection of “cleared zones”, we as global citizens will not return to “normal” until we have a vaccine.


  1. The case for ending the COVID-19 pandemic with mass testing
  2. A guide to the vaccines and drugs that could fight Coronavirus
