Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health, food security and development today. Tiny Earth is a global network of educators who teach a research course aimed at discovering new antibiotics. The course provides students with the opportunity for original thinking and scientific discovery, thereby capturing the very aspects of science that inspire students to pursue STEM careers. Students are inspired not just by the chance to do authentic research, but to be a part of a global effort addressing a looming public health crisis.
Registration is free and includes a free tour of Lambeau Field and hors d’oeuvres. All are welcome, but please register here.
