Has anyone ever told you to think big? Microbiologists do the opposite: think small, so small they can only see it with a microscope. Readers learn that though microbiologists study the smallest organisms on Earth, they ask big questions about life processes, like sickness and health, and everyday questions, such as how bread is made. Including the schooling, training, and daily tasks of these incredible scientists, the main content also covers information readers will encounter in the science classroom, such as how bacteria grow, methods for experiments, and perhaps how to bake a better loaf of bread.
