Our lab recently published an innovative method to teach biosafety protocols to college students. The article entitled “The scene of the crime: classroom integration of biosafety, microscopy, and forensics” was published in the Nov-Dec issue of The American Biology Teacher journal. Our team developed and implemented a unique teaching module for our Animal Science 224 class. The students have the opportunity to work with animals on farms and our crime scene style investigation helps students identify breaches in biosafety protocols. The addition of this module to our course has helped students understand their role in maintaining the health of the animals at the University farms.
