Bio-Rad® Microbes and Health Kit

Examine Metabolism, Cellular Chemistry, and the Role of Bacteria

  • Lab can be completed in three 45 minute sessions
  • Includes materials for eight student workstations with two to four students per group
  • Curriculum includes Teacher’s Guide, Student Manual, and Graphic Quick Guide
In this laboratory activity, students examine both the risks and benefits of bacteria to better understand their role in disease and food production. Join Robert Koch, Louis Pasteur, and the founders of modern microbiology in a thrilling search to find the bacterial culprit behind a new disease called “Yogurtness™” — an affliction of “healthy” milk that causes it to become acidic and thick. Students will use Koch’s postulates along with microscopes, agar plates, and their powers of observation, to identify the guilty microbe in this inquiry-based activity.
