At-home Activity Spotlight
Making with Microbes
A weeklong science experiment that only uses three simple ingredients you should be able to find at any grocery store? Too good to be true? It’s not! It’s Making with Microbes!
You are just one week away from growing your very own biomaterial by collaborating with microbes — tiny microscopic organisms. It just takes sugar, tea and kombucha! Please remember to shop safely and responsibly.
What would you make if you had a team of thousands of microorganisms working for you? How would you teach a computer to recognize a giraffe? Amazing things happen when we combine science, technology and your imagination.
