Welcome to Microbe Magic, the interactive science website for primary school students! Why not try out all of the links? You can play games, take a quiz or even try out experiments. There are lots of choices for students, parents and teachers!
Microbe Magic is the main information portal for primary school students to the APC Microbiome Institute!
The APC Microbiome Institute is a scientific research centre, based at University College Cork, where nearly 200 scientists are working hard to figure out how the good bacteria in your gut keep you healthy and how they can be used to treat disease. Your clever body can tell if a microbe is good for you or if it is bad and APC scientists are trying to find out how your body knows this. When they find out, they want to make microbes work for mankind – and work hard to keep you healthy!
The education and outreach team at APC helps to take care of the Microbe Magic website.
