Even More Bacteria!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday season! 🙂
In my previous blog post, I talked about a private book launch event with a local school. During the event I had volunteers swab different surfaces in an effort to collect and grow bacteria in petri dishes containing nutrient agar. After a few weeks, the school sent me photos of the petri dishes, with some fantastic results!

I’m sure the students were amazed as well as disgusted with their findings! I bet they will be making the extra effort to wash their hands from now on. 😉

You can find out about bacteria in my book, Microbes, where I cover the different shapes of bacteria, how they reproduce, and the problem with resistant bacteria and antibiotics.

If you’d like to purchase a copy of Microbes, you can find it on Waterstones, Amazon and from my publisher, Thunderstone Books.

If you’re interested in growing your own bacteria in petri dishes, follow this link or this link.

Happy bacteria growing!
Amy
