In these uncertain times marked by the COVID-19 pandemic we have strived to raise awareness about the brighter side of the microbial world.

In our aim to bring microbiology closer to society, and particularly to the youngest, we have developed an educational outreach activity to introduce children to microorganisms in general and bacteria in particular. 

 Visiting our very special Bacterial Park, kids can explore different habitats and meet #AweseomeMicrobes with fascinating features that will sure surprise them. Moreover, the booklet has been translated to several EU languages ensuring that as many children as possible can understand it.  It is available online and free to download, so if you are a parent, a teacher or just want to have a good time with your inner child we encourage you to explore it!
