Giant Microbes - 'E-Coli'
E-Coli. It caused more fake sickies than any other malady when it was
found in our water supply a few years ago, and kept the water filtration
companies in business. Want to give it to your mother in law?
Giant microbes are a fun and tactile way to learn about
micro-organisms. Every microbe featured is a representation of a real
microbe as viewed through an electron micrograph, and blown up to about a
million times it's normal size. Admittedly, these microbes in their
normal state are not soft, cuddly or colourful, nor do they have the
ability to see. But then they wouldn't be as cute, so kids wouldn't
play with and learn about them as much.
All microbes carry an information tag showing microbe characteristics. Some offer a donation to support various charities
