Team Mighty Microbe

TRG created Team Mighty Microbe to help bring memorable and easy to implement educational outreach materials to water districts and others engaged in water recycling and wastewater treatment outreach to school districts and students. Colorful trading cards, a PowerPoint® presentation and prepared handouts help educate kids (along with parents, teachers and school administration!) about the importance of microbes’ role in treating our wastewater, how we can help the microbes do their job, and why wastewater and recycled water treatment is so important. Kids are engaged by the bright, colorful illustrations and interesting facts, and schools welcome the curriculum-enhancing science and social studies information.
