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
