Microbes are tiny living things, such as bacteria and fungi, and they are EVERYWHERE! They are in the water, soil, and the air. Some microbes make us sick; others are important for our health. Individually they are too small to be seen without a microscope. Like the animals in a zoo, they are living things with specific needs for food, temperature, and moisture. With a few household ingredients, we can create a comfortable environment for microbes and grow our own colonies, creating a microbe zoo!
Materials: Instructions will be provided on the week of the event.
