Observing the discovery of antibiotics in Year 4

The world would be a very different place without the wonderful discovery of penicillin.

It is estimated that 80-200 million lives have been already saved.

Science is all about observations, asking questions and carrying out awesome experiments.

This week Year 4Z learnt about Alexander Fleming's discovery of penicillin. They carried out an experiment to simulate the growth of bacteria in the form of mould which gave birth to this discovery. The children surely had fun recreating this awesome discovery.
