Join the four major microbes on an improvised comedy romp through the human body, courtesy of Last Best Comedy. This family-friendly “Choose-You-Own-Adventure"-style show will incorporate audience suggestions to find out what happens when a bunch of different organisms try to make their home inside the same body. Will good bacteria and bad bacteria ever find harmony? Will a virus attempt to take over, taking the fun out of fungi? You help decide in this all-ages interactive performance.

Make-Your-Own Microbe Art Workshop
12:30 – 3:30 p.m. | Redstart Classroom
Using fabric and other creative materials, design your very own microbe to take home and add one to the growing communal colony.
