WestFest: The Ohio State University Science & Sustainability Festival

In October 2022, the CFI Team participated in the annual WestFest event, WestFest: The Ohio State University Science & Sustainability Festival on the university's west campus. The Center for Foodborne Illness Research and Prevention (CFI) and many others were present, showcasing science and sustainability, STEM research, and outreach programs at OSU in various ways through family-friendly activities. At our booth, we educated children, students, parents, teachers and educators on biofilm through slime and glitter, inspired by our international research project, TARTARE in Ethiopia.
