Competition: Design Your Own Microbe

Part of Microbes Week

What shape is it? Does it have any adaptations to help it survive in the environment? Is it a harmful or beneficial microbe? If it’s a helpful microbe, what is it used for? Be sure to name your microbe. You could make a news story about your discovery!

Ideas for the craft - you can choose to model your microbe from:

  • Playdough, salt dough etc.
  • Draw it or use felt/crotchet techniques if available
  • Recycle any cardboard or plastic material in your house

If you are stuck for inspiration - google the word microbe and check the images section.

Make sure to submit the picture of your microbe with its name and what it does for our weekly competition.

This page is part of the Microbes Week information.
