In this laboratory activity, students examine both the risks and benefits of bacteria to better understand their role in disease and food production. Join Robert Koch, Louis Pasteur, and the founders of modern microbiology in a thrilling search to find the bacterial culprit behind a new disease called “Yogurtness™” — an affliction of “healthy” milk that causes it to become acidic and thick. Students will use Koch’s postulates along with microscopes, agar plates, and their powers of observation, to identify the guilty microbe in this inquiry-based activity.
