Grades 5–10. This complete STEM-based curriculum guides students through culturing and presumptive identification of common microbes on innovative LaMotte® BioPaddles®. Working in teams, students perform air sampling to explore and identify microbes encountered daily in their school surroundings and predict which environmental factors affect airborne microbe growth. During their investigations, students apply STEM concepts to design passive sampling techniques for collecting airborne microbes. This develops critical-thinking skills and emphasizes engineering as a key component. Kit includes a CD of instructions and a presentation, BioPaddles®, and magnifying lenses. Kit also includes free access to the LaMotte® BioPaddles® Colony ID™ Lite app to compare “unknown” microbe growth on the BioPaddle® against a library of photos. Extra Tryptic Soy/Rose Bengal BioPaddles® (item #653579) may be purchased to perform additional activities included in the manual. Note: This item is shipped via ground from the manufacturer in Maryland on Mondays and Tuesdays only, and delivered Wednesday through Friday only (depending on delivery location). Please allow 2 weeks advance notice with specific Monday or Tuesday shipping date.
