The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) Education Board's mission is to educate individuals at all levels in the microbiological sciences. It supports both student and faculty development through fellowships, online publications, conferences, workshops, institutes, and networking opportunities. The ASM K-12 Classroom and Outreach Activities collection is meant to illustrate the incorporation of the microbial world in the K-12 community either through science courses or through community-based events and programs. The activities come from classroom teachers and microbiologists and have been reviewed by the ASM Committee on K-12 Outreach for scientific and educational content, active learning and engagement, alignment with the National Science Education Standards, and clarity of accompanying instructions.
