A series of farm biosecurity learning modules were developed during a five-year livestock biosecurity grant project directed by UVM Animal and Veterinary Sciences Research Associate Professor Julie Smith.

Also part of the grant project and recently published, the SCRUB (Science Creates Real Understanding of Biosecurity) curriculum contains modules and activities that complement the biosecurity learning modules. The SCRUB curriculum links hands-on learning with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. They incorporate science into fun activities to engage youth in grades 6 to 12 who have an existing interest in animal science.

The learning modules and SCRUB curriculum are appropriate for 4-H and FFA participants, college students studying animal science, and other agriculturally-related youth groups.
