Project Title: how can we prevent less West Nile

Problem Definition: West Nile infection is caused by a virus transmitted by mosquitoes. Most people infected with West Nile virus don't experience any signs or symptoms, or may experience only minor ones, such as fever and mild headache. However, some people who become infected with West Nile virus develop a life-threatening illness that includes inflammation of the brain.

Problem Solution: we are trying to find a way to prevent less people to get infected we have been doing a model on Star Logo TNG and we made it to real world problem and we are seeing that a lot of people get infected by this virus in New Mexico. About 20 percent of the people who become infected will develop West Nile fever.

Up to date: we have made a star logo model so far that helps us a lot to figure out how to prevent West Nile and to help out people to not get it and for less people to die from it or to get infected by the virus. We are ready to finish the model and start making it a lot better.w4e worked the model and it only needs a little more work to make to real world but its good.

Expected Results: we expect to have ready some reasons for people to be careful about West Nile and to help them out. By preventing West Nile you can be safe to die or get really sick. West Nile can Couse a person to have serious injuries. We do not want more people to die from this and that’s why we have done this problem.
