This site makes microbes interesting to anyone. There is a section called the
snack bar that was very interesting. It explained how we use microbes everyday
in the formation of certain foods. Some of these food items, I knew used
bacteria, others, like chocolate, was a surprise to learn about. Another
catagory that I found to be intriquing was the studies being done regarding
exterestrial microbes.
This is a wonderful resource for teachers and students, perhaps best suited to
teaching kids through high school(although I had a great time with the site and
I'm 28). This site uses some fun drawings and has some great candid microscopic
snap shots.

Technical Remarks:

This site is easy to navigate. It may take you 30-45 minutes to fully explore
the site but it will reinforce your knowledge of biological processes and make
you have a fun time doing it.
