Summer SAVY 2017, Session 6/Day 3- Industrial Microbiology (Rising 4th/5th)

Posted by on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 in SAVY.

We had bacterial filled Wednesday!

And yes that is a good thing….

We started the day by playing our favorite game where the teachers have to guess something about each student. From there we spent the day discussing genetic manipulations, GMOs and how bacteria are isolated. We talked about pH scale, genetic engineering and how Bt crystals make insects stomachs explode!

We started our Microbe Hunt Challenge, where students designed their own product made from bacterial gene expression. Students sampled environmental areas where these genes could be found and devised a plan on how to profit from such discoveries. Money money money!

Below are the group poster picture ideas…

See you guys tomorrow! Be ready for smelly fermentation…you will find out 😉
