Grades 6–12. Microscopic Monsters is a larger-than-life adventure on a microscopic scale. The series features scientific expeditions in the ecologies of pond, stream, forest, and backyard—plus a bonus episode exploring the diverse world of a microbial mat, where life’s most primitive organisms thrive to this day. A unique, stunning visual style places “micronaut” adventurers amongst the live-action inhabitants of “microspace,” where they make fundamental discoveries about the nature of life.

These content-packed 5-minute programs present the classic organisms of biology in a way never seen before. Our research vessel, the Cyclops, is an imaginary vehicle just 1 mm long. Her inquisitive captain and crew are researchers and naturalists on a journey through the microscopic realm that inspires students to conduct their own explorations with a hand lens or microscope. As each exploration unfolds, the viewer is drawn into uncharted territory, discovering microscopic life as it has never been seen before through a production style that encourages observation and reflection. Like a naturalist’s discovery journal, a companion Exploration Guide augments and supports each adventure program, highlighting its marvels and delving deeper into ecology and organisms and their biology. This series is 65 minutes long and includes 13 programs:

  • Program 1: Perilous Plankton
  • Program 2: Photosynthetic Fauna
  • Program 3: Plagued by a Predator
  • Program 4: A Monster in the Shallows
  • Program 5: The Bacterium That Came to Dinner
  • Program 6: Voyage to the Bottom of the Food Chain
  • Program 7: Quick Critters
  • Program 8: Down the Waterfall

  • Program 11: The Province of Plant Prospectors
  • Program 12: Lair of the Earthworm

Each program also includes an additional reference document for download. This schoolwide subscription gives all teachers and students affiliated with the school access to the series of programs for 1 year.
