Description

The Tiny Earth is a group of teachers and students whose major goal is to find microorganisms that produce antibiotics in the soil. Reading to discover more about the project's objective, which includes encouraging younger generations of students to pursue careers in science through laboratory and field research in courses. Similarly, the Tiny Earth project is working to discover a solution to the continuous health problem of antibiotic resistance, which we are all aware of. The reason why The Tiny Earth Organization is so important and beneficial is because students have the capacity to solve the crisis by discovering many new antibiotics through their sheer numbers as well as the ingenuity that they bring to the research. Considering the soil sample that I dug up in my backyard, there were a lot of different types of microorganisms that were in my soil that gave off a lot of different types of colonies and morphologies of different bacteria's which gave me a good view on where to start after which candidates to pick which would be beneficial in the assistance of me finding and contributing to the health problem of antibiotic resistance and finding a solution.
