Every year Georgia Tech hosts the Earth Day Festival on campus to celebrate our planet Earth. Our lab members were excited to participate again this year to share our knowledge on the biodiversity and the ecological importance of freshwater protozoans with the general public. Crowds were attracted by our interactive booth with microscopes, agar plates on which bacteria isolated from Piedmont Park ponds are growing, and microcosms containing various protist species. Thank you to everybody who came by and helped today!
