Microbiology Today - Schoolzone
Microbiology Today is the Microbiology Society's quarterly magazine. Aimed at both the specialist and the general reader, the magazine has a colourful and stylish layout with a lively range of features and articles, which proves a valuable resource for anyone wishing to know more about current issues and research in microbiology. The content is carefully balanced to meet the needs of the Society’s members and the magazine aims to provide informative and enjoyable broad-interest articles for all stakeholders, including parliamentarians and policy-makers.
Within Microbiology Today, we have a dedicated education section called Schoolzone, which features previews of new school resources, recommended microbiology practical experiments and articles written by leading experts.

In February, a team of volunteers from the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology (SWDSP), University of Oxford spent a day with year 5 children at Pegasus Primary School, Oxford. The theme of the event was ‘Microscopes’ and how they enable us to better understand the world around us.
Our members regularly engage with local schools or school-age groups, introducing them to the world of microbiology through many creative channels. The following is an example of a large consortium of mainly Microbiology Society members engaging children with the ideas of antibiotic resistance and hands-on science through the SAW Trust.
