IPM Curriculum

The Integrated Pest Management coordinators at the University of Connecticut are working with Connecticut teachers to develop comprehensive curricula for children and young adults in grades K through 8. These curricula are intended to illustrate the application of the science, math and language arts taught in our schools to solving the environmental and human health problems facing society and to introduce the concepts of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to the younger generation. The interactive, easy-to-follow lessons and supplemental resource materials will enable participants to make environmentally sound, economically smart decisions when facing the growing problem of pest management.
