In this class, we'll take a look at bacteria and viruses that impact our lives. We'll talk about why they aren't all bad for us, and why some can cause diseases. Students will learn the differences between a eukaryotic (human) cell, a bacterial cell, and a viral particle.

Students will improve their understanding of cells and particles. They will see micrographs, gain an understanding of how important and common they are, and learn how to successfully wash their hands.

Kids have wonderful questions, they feel secure when they know the answers, and I hope to foster their interest in biology.

I fully understand that students may have questions about the current coronavirus pandemic. I will answer any questions they have, in an age appropriate manner.
