LaMotte™ Food Microbe Hunter™ Activities
Students apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts to the exploration of microbes that they encounter every day.
Manufacturer: LaMotte™ 5565
STEM-based activities guide students through the culturing and presumptive identification of common microbes on innovative BioPaddles™ - each containing microbe-specific media enclosed in a sterile vile. Activities develop critical thinking skills and emphasize engineering as a key component.
Students determine what factors affect microbe growth in food by designing experiments to control intrinsic and extrinsic factors, predict the probability of microbe growth on foods, and design an experiment to prove their hypothesis about the preservative effects of pickling.
Activities and topics:
- Culture grocery store products and school surroundings
- Identification of microbes in and on food
- Food spoilage
- Moisture equilibrium
- Water activity
- Food as an ecosystem
- Organized for classroom use
- Culture bacteria without Petri dishes - no prep time
- Student teams design experiments
- Step-by-step introductory to advanced activities
- PowerPoint presentations for iPad, ID guides, resources, links, etc
