"Mobile microbiology" in Lab in a Box's southern tour

Posted by on 1 November 2016 | Comments

A team from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology is on the road with Lab in a Box, bringing science to primary schools around South Otago and Southland.

Last week Judith Bateup and Clare Fitzpatrick introduced children from Catlins Area School the wonders of what can't be seen with the naked eye. This week, students of Longford and Otama Schools in Gore will examine the wriggling microbes that live in pond water. Next week will take the team and the mobile shipping-container lab to visit schools in Invercargill.
