Overview A wonderful resource for science fair competitions. Microbiology contains 20 entertaining, educational projects that teach the scientific method and analytical thought through hands-on experiments. These experiments are not just fun and interesting, they are also real scientific work, examining such things as: Can extracts from tree bark inhibit the growth of bacteria? Can insects transport microbes? Does shaking hands or coughing really spread bacteria? Can vapors from common spices control microbial growth? Does heating garlic reduce its ability to control bacteria? How pure are different brands of bottled water? Do bacteria become resistant to household disinfectants? Does electromagnetic radiation affect populations of brine shrimp? For each experiment, author H. Steven Dashefsky includes in-depth background information, an overview, a materials list, step-by-step illustrated instructions, procedures for analyzing the data, and suggestions and resources for further study and experimentation.
