Biosecurity Learning Modules
The biosecurity learning modules series is appropriate for use by grade school to high school teachers, 4-H, FFA and other agricultural instructors.
Students are encouraged to learn on their own too. The modules are easy to follow, and include many activities that help with remembering the information.
Six modules comprise the series:
SCRUB: Science Creates Real Understanding of Biosecurity
SCRUB Kits link hands-on activities with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, by combining science with fun activities and engaging youth in grades 6 to 12 who are interested in animal science.
The kits focus on four areas:
- Disease transfer
- Cleaning and disinfecting
- Vaccine handling
- Building a biosecure farm
Help students to visualize real life examples of the importance of biosecurity measures and compliance!
Grime Scene Biosecurity Tabletop Exercise
Grime Scene is a problem-based learning biosecurity tabletop exercise for students of all ages.
Three fictional farms with different management approaches are presented to small, facilitated groups (three to eight people) sitting around a table.
The groups are asked to discuss a series of events that occurred on the farms resulting in livestock becoming sick.
This exercise was created to emphasize the importance of basic biosecurity principles and protocols. The link to learn more will take you to the EDEN website.
