Learn more about the Science of Animals Project area and zoonotic diseases

Zoonotic Disease Detective Toolkit logo

A great new informational video outlining the Science of Animals project area is now available on our Minnesota 4-H Youtube Channel! Check it out to learn more about how to explore your passion for animals and exhibit at the fair. Plus, Science of Animals projects who earn a trip to the state fair get to exhibit livestock weekend, without having to earn an animal trip!

A second great resource is also available. The Science of Animals project evaluation sheet has been updated to help guide you through the creation of your project exhibit.

Remember, again this year, Science of Animals projects focused on zoonotic diseases will receive additional premiums at the state fair! To learn more about zoonotic diseases, contact your local program staff for resources including a toolkit with lesson plans and supplies, a board game, and a card game.

We hope to see lots of great Science of Animals projects this year!
