Microbes Are Everywhere

In this activity, students will learn that microbes can be found everywhere. The activity will demonstrate that with the proper resources, microbes (in this experiment, mostly bacteria) grow rapidly in number to form colonies with distinct appearances. Some fungi, in the form of molds, also may be seen.
