Me, my mind and my microbes!


Years 7-10
Term 2 Monday–Friday


School programs and resources

Did you know you are not just you? You are a host for trillions of microbes; most are helpful and even beautiful. Learn about cutting edge research showing the response of the body to the presence of micro-organisms, such as the gut—mind—body network.

This new program includes a staff-led gallery introduction, booked gallery time and a comprehensive student gallery booklet, linked to the curriculum, for use in both Gut Feelings and The Mind exhibitions, and back at school. Available from Term 2, 2019.
