Medicines From Microbes

This unit proves an opportunity for children to think about micro-organisms, and come to understand that they can be both helpful and harmful, depending on how they are grown and used. The activities are put in a real-life context, that of biotechnology and the development of new medicines, with the need to find the best conditions for mould growth.
