The 20th and 24th November saw me talk about microbes to two year 6 classes at Kingsgate Primary School in West Hampstead. They were a fantastically enthusiastic group with loads of great questions, so much so that two 30 minute presentations ended up taking almost an hour and a half each! We discussed the good things that microbes do for us, some of the unpleasant things they do (always popular!) and how we fight back.
As ever, it was a nice change from the serious business of MSc student education!
