CURE Biology: Analyzing Microbes Using a Collaborative STEM Approach
We developed a Course-based Undergraduate Research Experience (CURE) to emphasize applied STEM and promote scientific communication. Students use the scientific process, microbiology, and analytical chemistry to characterize microbes encountered in their daily lives. They communicate their findings in an exercise that illustrates the collaborative nature of science and the supporting curriculum.
