What About Microbes! (Grades 6-8)
SCIENCE - Which houses more bacteria, a sink or a light switch? We will search for microbes and learn if washing with a detergent effectively removes them. Lastly, we will use a simulated model system to demonstrate how microbes transfer from one object or person to another.
TECHNOLOGY - We will use computer applications to explore the world of robotics and analyze our experimental data.
ENGINEERING - As we introduce the world of robotics, we will build and program robots to complete missions.
ARTS - We will use artistic design to illustrate bacterial growth and structure, and the use of technical writing to communicate their findings.
MATH - Is that lunch still safe to eat? We will discover how bacterial growth is affected by time and temperature.
