COSI Big Science Celebration

In May 2022, the CFI Team participated in the COSI Big Science Celebration. During the event, we met with more than 1,000 participants to teach them about biofilm. Children attending the celebration mixed red, blue and green glitter (to represent Listeria, Campylobacter and Salmonella) into clear slime (which represented biofilm). More photos of the event are available below.
