Dillard Middle School’s Microbiome Adventures


This past weekend was the SciTech Triangle Expo at the North Carolina Science Museum, and the students of Dillard Middle School were on hand to teach attendees about the wonders of the microbiome.

Teacher Joann Blumenfeld wrote in to tell us all about it…

Dear Alexandra,

Last Saturday, my students were at SciTech Expo with their exhibit: ” The Ecosystems Within Us: The Microbiome”

It was a great success! 5342 people attended the event, up more than 1000 from last year.

Our exhibit included:


I am proud of the kids and all we learned on this topic! We also taught 200 2nd graders from Dillard Drive Elementary School 15 different science activities at a Science Fair at our school. Thanks for the two free kits, uBiome T-shirts and all your time and help!! We deeply appreciate it!

The kids even wore their uBiome shirts to school on Monday, they were so proud.

All the best,

Thanks so much, Joann and Dillard Middle School. We salute your creativity, dedication, and bacterial education efforts. Keep up the inspiring work!
