MEGAMicrobe is about showing young people that science is
important, it’s accessible and it’s a lot of FUN!

Join us at this free community event to learn about and celebrate microbes with real scientists! Together, we want to spread the message that:

  • Science is important and fun
  • There is no reason to be intimidated, anyone can be a scientist
  • Scientists are regular people, solving real-world issues.


Dress up to compete in our microbe costume contest, perform spooky experiments, make crafts, play games and win prizes!

MEGAMicrobe Goals:

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!
