We’ve created a Bacteria Builder online game!

Friday 01 December 2017

Dr Mel Lacey and her team have created Bacteria Builder, an online game that challenges you to learn about bacterial form and function to create bacteria which can survive in different kinds of environments. From the soil to the human ear, you’ll need to know a flagellum from an efflux-pump to help your bacterial buddies thrive in their new homes.
 
The game is a lesson-sized educational resource for budding microbiologists of all ages and was created with an Educational Resources Grant from the Society for Applied Microbiology.
 
But don’t just take our word for it, have a go yourself! Click here to play the game.
