Featured Product
The Microbe Zoo WEB and CD-ROM

The Microbe Zoo invites young people to actively explore the hidden world of microbes through an appealing, fun interface. Rather than visit the "Lion House" or the "Monkey House," learners go to microbe habitats such as dirt, water, and inside of humans and animals. At the "Snack Shop," you can look at the microbes that live in snacks, rather than eating snacks.
