Microbiology Club


The Microbiology Club is a great way to meet other Microbiology students, to learn about careers and opportunities while at ISU and after you graduate. Meetings are usually held twice a month on Thursday evenings from 6:10 – 7:00 in room 277, Science 1. The meeting dates are as follows:

September 20th - Rebekah Reynolds, topic related to Medical Entomology

October 4th - Dr. Bellaire as Guest Speaker

October 25th - Halloween Craft Night

November 8th - Preparation for High School Workshop

November 9th - High School Workshop

December 6th - Officer Elections

The Iowa State University Microbiology Club offers a one day High School Workshop in the fall that incorporates various lab activities and incorporates a Forensics Murder Mystery using microbiology. During the year there are additional opportunities to meet other Micro students and use your skills in outreach activities. The club also has a fundraiser to assist Micro students attending the national American Society of Microbiologists meeting, which will be in San Francisco, CA June 20-24, 2019. In the summer, there is a 2 week AgDiscovery residential program for junior high and high school students sponsored by APHIS where Micro students have the opportunity to help instruct others in beginning Microbiology activities.
