5 week course on Wednesdays from 16th Oct to 13th Nov
Did you know there is more life in a drop of puddle water or a single gram of soil from your garden than there are people on the whole planet? Join us and get familiar with this universe of hidden creatures
This is a series of 5 weekly workshops including tuition and hands-on experiments in microbiology led by our microbiology expert lab technician, Jiri. We will take you through the fascinating hidden world of microbes. Each day you will gain new insights into microbiology and have a chance to work independently in ASCUS Lab supported by Jiri. Work with microbes often used in the lab, including baker’s yeast and bacteria. Find out how some microbes produce light, antibiotics, and pigments.
Our hands-on workshops include learning culturing, sample collection, inoculation, incubation, and observation. Explore and gain an understanding of how our world is inhabited and literally covered with microbes and how these organisms interact with each other and can be used in creative projects, food production, and biotechnology.
All you need is yourself, a notebook and an open mind. All other materials are provided.
