Middle school students learn about bacteria on their bodies!

In collaboration with the Natural History Museum of Utah we have designed a program that allows children ages 10-13 to have a hands on experience learning about their microscopic inhabitants. Children culture bacteria from their mouth, look at these bacteria under the microscope, speak with graduate students and post-docs in the lab about their research and visit the germ-free animal facility.
