Teens, ages 12-18, will try to uncover what caused a zombie outbreak in the DMV.

There's been an outbreak in the DC Metro Area causing a change in some residents' behaviors and cravings. All of the affected seem to have attended a county fair. Statements have been gathered from friends and family members of people who attended the fair, which Z.O.M.S. will use to figure out where the virus originated to prevent further spread.

Snacks will be provided. 

Contact mzimmerman@alexlibraryva.org for more information. 

This activity is based on the Disease Detectives: Zombie Outbreak activity created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

Join us on July 16 for Z.O.M.S. - Disaster and on August 13, Z.O.M.S. - Recovery.
