Primary Schools invitation only event

Mysterious Microbes has been designed to teach young people about microbes and how microbial infections are spread and can be prevented through improved hygiene.

This hands on workshop introduces, in a fun and engaging manner, the different types of microbes which share our world with us.
The interactive activities cover the topics of:
• hand hygiene
• respiratory hygiene
• Usefulness and dangers of some microbes.

The learning objectives of this programme are:
• Microbes can sometimes cause illness and diseases.
• The symptoms of illnesses (like sneezing) can lead to microbes being spread and other people getting infected.
• Good hygiene can reduce the spread of microbes and so stop infections spreading.

The mysterious microbe session is virtually introduced by Scientific Sue via a 20-minute video introducing microbes ‘the good the bad and the ugly!’
