Winter Update


Winter quarter is upon us. It’s going to be an exciting quarter for Microphiles, as we are launching our Public Outreach Program! We will be running an after-school microbiology club at a local elementary school. In addition, we’re having a cheese-making party. If all goes well, a cheese-eating party will follow.

Our first general meeting will be on Tuesday, January 6th, at 17:30 (5:30 pm) in PAA A214. General meetings are held every other Tuesday and are open to the public. The location changes depending on the needs of the particular meeting, so check the website for details. Better yet, sign up for our email list by sending an email to microph@uw.edu
