Presenter: Jeanette Tran

With the new HSC syllabus there is an opportunity to conduct a range of independent learning projects in Biology. Microbiology offers a rich array of meaningful learning experiences. 

This session utilises a combination of discussion and hands-on. We will be exploring the ways you can use microbiology to bring biology practical teaching to life. 

This session will also address: 

  • The ABC of media: preparation, sterilization and storage.
  • Characteristics of selected low risk organisms.
  • Pure culture techniques, subculturing and preservation.  
  • Control of microbial growth- physical and chemical methods.

As well as practical components associated with: 

  • Serial Dilutions & Enumeration.
  • Bacterial Transformation
  • Safe investigation and characterising of soil bacteria.
  • Water quality testing- chromogenic analysis.
  • Bioremediation by oil eating bacteria.
