An electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) is an electronic device that simulates tobacco smoking. In recent years, there has been a surge of adolescents vaping; with multiple adverse impacts on public health. This curriculum was developed to inform adolescents about the real cost of vaping and prevent tobacco companies from using e-cigarettes to hook a new generation of tobacco users.

This lesson will cover basic information about e-cigarettes, distinguish facts from myths, and provide information to understand that e-cigarette aerosol is not just harmless water vapor. ‚Äč
