Hello from 4th Street Studios!

The microbe project that we have been working on in cooperation with the National Science Foundation, Wyoming EPSCoR, and Wyoming schools has started off with our first samples recently being plated!

If you are an educator or know an educator who would be interested in joining the project, look no further! Below you’ll find instructions on how to participate.

First off, contact us here at 4th Street Studios to express your interest. Email info@4thstreetstudios.com OR contact us through our Facebook Page. 

Go out to the a playground, lawn, or field near your school and collect a small samples of soil (no more than a cup or so). If you get samples from more than one area, be sure to store them in separate, labeled baggies.

Finally, send the samples to:

4th Street Studios, 315 S. 4th Street, Laramie, WY 82071

And let us know that the samples are on their way! Once they arrive we’ll plate the samples in petri dishes of agar and take pictures of the microbe cultures that grow inside the petri dishes! We’ll be writing a weekly blog post of updates and pictures to keep everyone up to date with their soil samples!

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@4thstreetstudios.com or at https://www.facebook.com/4thStreetStudios/.
