Additional Information

Tiny Earth Partner Instructor
Tiny Earth is a network of instructors and students focused on studentsourcing antibiotic discovery from soil.  The mission of the program is two-fold:

First, it seeks to inspire students to pursue careers in science through original laboratory and field research conducted in introductory courses with the potential for global impact.

Second, it aims to address a worldwide health threat—the diminishing supply of effective antibiotics—by tapping into the collective power of many student researchers concurrently tackling the same challenge, living up to its motto “studentsourcing antibiotic discovery.”
