Exploring Microbiology

Discover the tiny world of microorganisms! Collecting samples from various plant and water sources, you’ll use microscopes to learn about microscopic single-celled and multicellular organisms. We’ll search for tardigrades, amoebas, ciliates, euglenoids, flatworms, rotifers, copepods, nymphs and more!
