2/18/2012 17:06:08International foundation of MicrobiologyMuch of health information and of science and biology started with Microbiology back in 1888 in France. Migrated to USA around 1920s and helped create a healthy society and a remarkable economy. Much of this knowledge never reached the developing countries and where it did reach, got isolated in universities and colleges never reaching the public. Unfotunately, it is now also disappearing in the United States as most universities and colleges have gotten heavily involved in research away from teaching. We are reviving that knowledge and guiding schools especially in the developing countries to introduce it via microscopes and via examining hand prints on Petri Plates and examining milk and water. This knowledge not only opens doors to healthful living but also serves as a useful starting point to science.http://www.ifoundmicrobiology.comK-3, 4-5, 6-8, 9-12, Higher Ed5
2/18/2012 17:52:54International Institute of Biochemical and Biomedicao Technology (IIBBT) Study of diseases in general but more specifically their cure and prevention was the initial incentive for this field to which later the advent of petroleum, chemical and textile industries added additional inventive to develop this field further as it became quite important economically. The discovery of DNA and protein structure and their biological functions opened up the field of molecular biology which eventually led to biotechnology and genetic engineering giving this field further importance as it began to promise custom (molecular) based therapies for many diseases and also opened ways to understand the overall functioning of life processes. The vastness of this field is now unfathomable yet it has not reached many developing countries and if it has it has been confined to their businesses and their universities and colleges leaving the average individual totally out of it. That creates a knowledge gap which makes the public vulnerable remaining consumers not participants or practitioners of this knowledge making them rather gullible. Yet this vast field difficult as it may appear is not so difficult because in practice as it is based on only a few fundamental concepts and skills which can be easily taught and learned. The purpose of the IIBBT is to popularize these concepts and skills thereby bringing more people into science and also expand the knowledge base of the general population making them beneficiaries not mere consumers of this knowledge. http://www.iibbt.com4-5, 6-8, 9-12, Higher Ed5

2/18/2012 18:08:44Science Skills CenterScience like music, art and sports is better taught with science instruments not with books. Books which introduce a beginning student to the periodic table and formulae actually scare the students away from science. We have established a science skills center where we introduce students to science via microscopes, pH meters, conductivity meters and spectrophotometers etc, This approach takes the fear out of science because as the students see and use the various instruments and find them not so difficult to use and when and why they are used, the basic learning instinct takes over and they get to love science instead of running away form it, Seeing is not only believing, it also infuses instant learning. http://www.scienceskillscenter.orgK-3, 4-5, 6-8, 9-12, Higher Ed5
