UConn’s Department of Molecular and Cell Biology and Connecticut State Museum of Natural History, part of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at UConn, presents Magnificent Microbes!, a weeklong microbiology field school for kids from Monday, July 11 through Friday, July 15, 9 am to 12 noon. The field school is part of the University of Connecticut’s Kids Are Scientists & Engineers Too program.

Explore unseen worlds that are all around you. Discover microscopic organisms that make your food taste good, and those that make your food go bad. Trek outside and hunt for microbes in lawns, ponds and woods! Watch gas production by the microbes living inside live termites. We’ll isolate DNA from bacteria and look at them with powerful microscopes. Join us and open your eyes to an exciting new world! Presented by the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology and Connecticut State Museum of Natural History.

The fee is $200 per student and is open to students entering grades 5 through 10. Advance registration is required. This adventure is offered through UConn’s Kids Are Scientists & Engineers Too program. To register contact K.A.S.E.T. at (860) 486-0194 or visit http://www.kaset.uconn.edu.
