Microbial Transformations

Zone D: Tempe campus

Pollutants can be turned into treasures by microbes. If we create environments that make them happy, microbes will do valuable jobs for us, like cleaning up pollution while generating renewable resources. Visitors roll balls along magnetic rails where microbes transform pollutants into valuable chemicals and their speed shows how much energy it takes to do their vital work.
