The students of Windsor 7 have uncovered the life supporting roles that some 21 species of bacteria perform in our soil. Working with professional microbiologists and a cartoonist, each student created an informational pamphlet, detailing the role of a bacterium. The pamphlets include bacteriocentric comics in which each tiny microbe shares some basic facts about its existence.

The pamphlets are available at local farms and nurseries to showcase the very important roles of bacteria in recycling the elements carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur.

Walking in the shoes (or rather, flagella) of a bacterium is no easy task for beings of our size. These brochures celebrate the world shaping work done everyday by microbes that most of us have never seen. We hope you’ll enjoy the scenes and then think twice the next time you reach for an antibiotic
