Grades 5–10. A fun and safe way to bring STEM-based learning into the classroom! This complete STEM-based curriculum guides students through the culturing and presumptive identification of common microbes on innovative LaMotte® BioPaddles®. Each paddle contains microbe-specific media enclosed in a sterile vial. Explore and identify microbes that students culture from popular dairy products such as milk, yogurt, and kefir. Activities and topics include probiotics, fermentation, pasteurization, and shelf life. Students work in teams to design and apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts to the exploration of microbes that they encounter every day. Activities develop critical-thinking skills and emphasize engineering as a key component. Each kit includes a CD of instructions and presentations, 10 BioPaddles® to perform the first 2 activities, and 10 magnifying lenses. Additional paddles may be purchased to perform the additional 3 main activities and the Going Further activities. Includes access to the free LaMotte® BioPaddles® Colony ID™ lite app to compare "unknown" microbe growth on the BioPaddle® against a library of photos.
