Bacteriology!? In Middle School!? You bet! Complex subject material becomes easy when it’s hands-on. Students use edible models to learn about different types of bacteria: a Skittle becomes a “coccus”; a Hot Tamale becomes a “bacillus”; a Gummi Worm becomes a “spirillum”. Next, students get to use a real Bacterial Incubator and petri dishes with nutrient agar to study harmless bacteria found in the environment around them. How sweet it is!
