This section highlights to students that not all microbes are harmful by examining beneficial microbes. This lesson aims to explore the various ways and means by which we utilise certain organisms for our benefit with examples from the food industry.
Through a yogurt making activity, students observe first-hand how microbes can be put to good use in the food industry, and learn that these microbes are beneficial to our gut, helping us digest.
