Tiny Earth
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is joining the push to mitigate one of the most critical public health crises facing the world: antibiotic resistance.  To achieve these goals, the initiative leverages a network of partner institutions where instructors learn the curriculum and integrate the research protocols in their lab-based courses at universities, colleges, and high schools. TE’s student scientists, many of them experiencing the scientific method in action for the first time, hunt for novel antibiotic organisms in soil samples. It’s a global and growing network—in 2017, the program added 40 new partner institutions. The community of instructors now encompasses 14 countries and 40 US states.  See more about the Tiny Earth here.
