Title: An Escape from Bioterrorism
Description: “An Escape from Bioterrorism!” explores the idea of how scientific modeling follows fits in to the scientific method. This activity is designed to teach how bioterrorism could be dangerous and how we can prevent it from spreading. To gain the most knowledge of bioterrorism, students will participate in a hands-on activity to test a simple model of vector-borne disease. Afterwards, the class will discuss the results and its effects in the real world. The entire activity is structured around the scientific method. This activity is prepared with the reference of PEER module “Texas, 1867,” but it can stand alone. 
Key Words: bioterrorism, scientific method, models, modeling, poisons, hands-on 
Grade Level: 6th, 7th, 8th 
Subject: Science, Math, Technology
