On October 23 2010, MicrobeWorld attended the first annual USA Science and Engineering Festival on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. In part 2 of this two-part video, Stanley Maloy, Dean of the College of Science at San Diego State University, continues his tour of the microbiology related exhibits at the festival.
Featured in this episode are members of the departments of biology and microbiology at the University of Georgia
and Idaho State University
. Maloy also introduces us to some of the work being done at The J. Craig Venter Institute in San Diego, Ca.
Watch as Maloy introduces us to the power of microbes through demonstrations of waste turned into energy, termites living off a diet of wood, and the radiation resistant power of microbes. Maloy also takes us on a tour of the The DiscoverGenomics! Mobile Laboratory
which travels around the Washington D.C. area visiting schools that otherwise wouldn't get the chance to see science in action.
