What Microbe Are You?

In this hands-on activity from American Society for Microbiology, students take an online "personality quiz" where their answers to a set of either/or statements match them with the marine microbes that most closely resemble their personalities. The microbes are given fun code names to circumvent the challenge of pronouncing the microbes' scientific names. Intended as a fun way to begin or end a unit on life science, the students learn about the vast diversity and critical importance of marine microbes.
