Who is MEGAMicrobe?

We are a group of scientists dedicated to spreading the word that:

Science is important and fun
No need to be scared or intimidated, anyone can be a scientist
Scientists are regular people
 

MEGAMicrobe Goals:

We would like to engage the Nashville community with free events focused on celebrating microbes! This program uses fun experiments, crafts and games to teach both parents and kids about topics including: bacteria, fungi, viruses, antibiotics, antivirals​, vaccines, microbiomes, superbugs, hygiene and more!
