Art and microbiology come together in this fun, unique hands-on workshop, held in partnership with The Fuse Factory Electronic and Digital Arts Lab. Participants will use color-producing microbes to create splashes of color on a ‘living’ work of art. They will learn about 4 pigmented bacteria, Micrococcus luteus(yellow), Rhodococcus rhodochrous (pink), Sarcina aurantiaca(orange-yellow), and Serratia marcescens D1 (red) and will have the opportunity to “draw” with them in a petri dish. This workshop is suitable for both kids aged 7+ and adults.
