Microworld®

The microbiology lab at the University of Geneva is currently working on a book in augmented reality about microbes. This will explain the different implications of microorganisms in our everyday lives, taking into account the latest scientific discoveries on microbiota. The augmented reality, which is a very promising technology, will offer a more fun and enjoyable experience for young children, who nowadays are less interested in simply reading. This project will contain useful responses to questions that have been wrongly answered by the media. It is also a pedagogical medium for professeurs in the Canton of Geneva, as the book will be given for free to public schools in Geneva . Moreover, it will be sold in kiosques, medical offices, on amazon, as well as being posted on a website. We were interested to contribute to this project, due to its link to the fields of STEM, and its interesting and largely undiscovered topic.
