This inquiry-based activity encourages students to explore print and Internet resources to investigate how microbes are used to create a variety of beneficial products. The instructor introduces each product during class and students are required to provide written answers to questions relating to the product or the microbe used to make it.The questions directly correlate to material presented in lecture, but students must seek the answers outside the text and lecture materials, fostering independent research, critical thinking skills, and application of concepts presented in lecture. This activity is appropriate for use in science courses for allied health majors, biology majors who are not microbiology majors, and microbiology majors.
