#ClayAtHome Growing Cultures
This week, we’re covering science, health and the world of bacteria!
Inspired by the ceramic penicillin culture vessels, originally produced in Stoke-on-Trent, Growing Cultures explore the connections between health, medicine and history.
Learn about the discovery of penicillin, the development of antibiotics and different types of good and bad bacteria from the worksheet then have a go at making your own bacteria cell from clay or salt dough!
Don’t forget to use the hashtag #ClayAtHome to share your creations with us and the rest of the community taking part in the programme.
The next video from the #ClayAtHome series will be released on 13th May. More information can be found on the #ClayAtHome website page and across our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels.
