More microbes for everyone!

Agriculture, food, medicine, health, fuel, environmental remediation…microbes have a huge impact on these aspects of our lives and many more. Yet young people, or even old curious people, are not readily exposed to this information. We need more microbes in the classroom…and further, we need microbes in museums! No, not like germs spread all over the computer or desk, or little Timmy coughing up a lung with his elementary school tour group at the local museum. And not just cool pictures of alien looking bags of goop! I’m talking about experiments that show kids the power of the microbe. Not experiments that take weeks, but experiments that show results in under an hour. So what shall we do?
