The educational packs from e-Bug are developed for teachers who want to make young people discover the world of microbes, the use of antibiotics, the spread of infections and the prevention of infections through proper hygiene and vaccination. e-Bug teaches children that antibiotics are valuable and that they have to be used properly. More than 19 European countries were involved in the development of e-Bug. In Belgium the project is coordinated by the Federal Public Service of Health, Food Chain Safety and Environment in co-operation with the University of Antwerp. The e-Bug packs can be copied for students and cannot be sold. Free packs can be ordered via the website. The initiative is funded by the European Commission.
e-Bug has a website www.e-bug.eu where you will find all the pages from the educational packs, demonstrations of the activities and additional interactive games allowing the students to learn the headlines in a playful way.
