Using turkey basters, sieves, measuring cups and hand lenses, students will work in pairs to extract water and microbes from bromeliad tanks. As students transfer the water into a transparent collection cup or sieve, they reveal a world of biodiversity living within the bromeliad. Using both Magiscopes and hand lenses to magnify the microbes 20x-40x, young scientists will discover a number of micro-organisms that make their home within the tanks of bromeliads. Saving a bromeliad today may save a frog tomorrow!
