Today our Project MERCCURI team gave a presentation at the National Science Teacher Association (NSTA) meeting in San Antonio.   We talked mostly about the project, but also about ways that teachers could incorporate microbiology of the built environment in their classrooms.  There’s a lot of interest in taking the kinds of work being done in this field and translating that into classroom materials.  We hope to be producing an educators guide in the next month or so that focuses on this.
