Bioterror

Ideas from Teachers


(Gr. 10-12)
Right after 9/11 I used NOVA's "Bioterror" program as a springboard for discussions about the anthrax scare. Now I use it right before our virus/bacteria unit to begin discussions about anthrax and other featured viruses and bacteria. I can't use experiments with actual viruses and bacteria to supplement the notes for the unit, so I use this and other videos instead.

Editor's note: To find out how vaccines are made using bacteria or viruses, see the "Making Vaccines" feature on the NOVA Web Site.
