July 17th-21st, M-F from 8:30am-3:00pm Grades 7-12 Campers will spend the week exploring microbiological techniques in the lab. They will learn about bacteria and all the cool things they can do. Students will learn aseptic techniques, how to make LB agar plates, grow bacteria, and various bacterial staining methods. Campers will explore the ways in which we can prevent bacterial growth by using antibiotics and common food spices. They will then learn how microorganisms are used to degrade oil slicks, make a bacterial fuel cell, and use fluorescent bacteria to draw glowing images.
