WatSAM and World Microbiome Day

For this year's World Microbiome day, WatSAM decided to engage the creative side of students on the University of Waterloo campus. A booth was set up with a option to decorate a cookie and design a pinback button with inspiration drawn from various types of petri dishes.

Students had a blast getting creative while learning and celebrating World Microbiome day.
