MANIPULATE MICROBES RIGHT IN YOUR CLASSROOM!

TBD

Round Lake High School

Facilitator: Suzanne Fetherling

Time: TBD

Location: Round Lake Senior High School, 800 High School Drive, Round Lake, IL 60073

Explore how antibiotics and plasmids affect the growth of microorganisms! We'll be exploring:

  • The Kirby-Bauer Test to determine the effectiveness of three different types of antibiotics on three different types of bacteria. 
  • Bacterial Transformation by introducing a Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) DNA  sequence into bacteria. By the end of the lab, we'll produce GLOWING colonies!

This workshop is perfect for teachers of middle school science, general biology, health sciences, or biotechnology students. 

Participants will be able to access all materials needed for the lab FOR FREE through our Baxter Box Loaner Program
