Wolbachia Warriors Program

The Eliminate Dengue Program has been working with Queensland primary schools as part of an innovative, educational program called Wolbachia Warriors. The program contributes directly to our research and gives students of all ages the opportunity to take part in a fun, real-life science project.  

Students who take part in the free, voluntary program learn how to make scientific observations, and accurately record their results. They are also given first-hand experience of how science can be used to tackle important global issues.

If you think your school would like to take part in this world-first program, contact us for more information.
