This activity is designed to teach students about bacteria and allow them to have fun designing their own! I have designed and tested the activity myself as part of my final year project.
The activity plan includes some facts students enjoy, a simple 'Simon Says' game to teach students about different structures and the main event of designing their own bacteria!
If you have any questions regarding the activity then please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
I can also provide the powerpoint presentation, as I am having problems uploading currently.
This activity is aimed at GCSE students (or KS3) to discuss antibiotic resistance and relate it to everyday life. It includes discussion on 'the future without antibiotics' with a list of ideas, discussion on what bacteria and antibiotics are, role play game of a cell and antibiotics as well as a debate concerning ethical questions of antibiotic resistance (e.g. should patients be made to take antibiotics under observation?).
I have designed this activity along with a 'design your own bacteria' activity for primary school students as part of my final year project and am happy to take any questions or help out.
The activity notes are provided here, and the power point presentation in a separate resource (could not upload here!). The activity notes contain what you will need to reproduce the activity and a basic outline of the main activities, while the presentation contains detailed notes.
I am currently having problems uploading the presentation so please feel free to email me and I will send it, or contact the STEM team at the Museum of Science and Industry..
High Performance Computing underpins many aspects of modern life, yet most people are completely unaware of it.

Young Scientists is an international online science journal written and edited entirely by students aged 12-20. It was founded by students at King's School Canterbury but now attracts authors of articles and editors from across the world. The journal aims to offer a vehicle for publishing science articles by young people, encouraging links across continents and time zones, and giving those interested in a career in science journalism an opportunity to enhance their writing and editing skills.
The journal publishes 2 issues per year (currently working on Issue 11) as well as running competitions, a science news service, forums and blogs and multimedia info.
Students working on the team as editors can use their work to help them gain a CREST Award, Duke of Edinburgh accreditation, and of course, enhance their university entrance credentials.
Teachers and other interested adult supporters can become Advisers, lending their support by promoting the project or becoming expert reviewers when the need arises.
Those interested should contact the Cheif Editor at email@example.com or Christina Astin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
