Giant Microbes as Teaching Tools!

Published: April 6th, 2012

Category: Featured, News

“If you have never seen the science version of Beanie Babies (sorry I’m dating myself here) called Giant Microbes, you are in for a treat!

However by far, the best activity I found came from Julie Bokor (the Assistant Director of Teacher Enrichment Programs at the University of Florida Center for Precollegiate Education and Training). She shared with me an extensive activity that she designed for a teacher institute that uses two sets of 15 Giant Microbes each! That’s a whopping 30 microbes total. She was gracious enough to share the activity with us!

The “Menacing Microbe” activity was designed with support of a HHMI Precollege Award. During the 2 week teacher workshop, Julie had the Giant Microbes hanging from the ceiling. ”
