Explore the world of things unseen. KFK Microscopic Life explores the world of tiny organisms that exist among us, from the bacteria in our bodies to the mites that live in our carpets. Meet the fungi and molds that help us in our daily lives, as well as the microscopic worms and viruses that can cause worldwide epidemics. Discover how we study these minute life-forms through microscopes and learn how scientists use them to find cures for diseases to make the world a healthier place. Microscopic Life explores the tiny worlds that exist around us and even within us! Examine how some organisms help us fight diseases and others help to produce food. But bacteria can also be harmful, causing tooth decay, food poisoning, and many deadly epidemics. Students will be amazed at the vast range of microscopic life and at the close proximity in which they live to humans!
