This interactive case study exposes students to an outbreak investigation that occurs after a number of people visit a swim club. The case includes 5 parts:
- Introduction: Students are introduced to the characters and learn about their symptoms
- Hypothesis Generation

The case begins with a pre-assessment, and as it unfolds students are presented with "Stop and Think" questions, drag and drop activities, videos and more.
