Guardians of the Gut is an exciting new resource for children to learn about the importance of their gut microbes.

Too small to see but outnumbering our human cells, the bacteria who reside in our gut join us at birth and grow and change with us as we age.  Our fun activities explain the different organs within the human body, introduce key microbes and the beneficial jobs they do and explore how invading bad bacteria and antibiotics can upset the balance.  Take the pre and post lesson quizzes to see your children grow in knowledge, download award certificates for your class and enter your school in a prize draw to win science goodies!

And best of all, it’s free to enrol your school and use!
