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:
  1. Disease transfer
  2. Cleaning and disinfecting
  3. Vaccine handling
  4. 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.
