How can I implement e-Bug in my school?
e-Bug have developed free face-to-face e-Bug Approved Educator Training sessions. This will give educators the skills, knowledge and confidence to teach using e-Bug resources. It also gives them a chance to see the e-Bug activities in action.
The training includes a combination of:
- junior activity demonstrations
- senior activity demonstrations
- activities from Beat the Bugs, which is a six-week community hygiene and self-care course
Educators will learn about the following, tailored to the groups that they teach:
- an introduction to microbes
- hand and respiratory hygiene

- oral hygiene
- antibiotics self-care
