Exploring Microbiology

Instructor: John Parker and Caitlin Chamberlin

This class will offer students the chance to explore the world of microorganisms. Collecting samples from various plant and water sources, students will use microscopes to learn about microscopic single-celled and multicellular organisms. We will search for tardigrades, amoebas, ciliates, euglenoids, flatworms, rotifers, copepods, nymphs and more!

No prerequisites, just interest and enthusiasm.

Sections are not sequential. Multiple sections are offered in an effort to accommodate more students.
