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.
