The Microbiology in Schools Advisory Committee MiSAC – Promoting microbiology in schools since 1969The purpose of the Microbiology in Schools Advisory Committee (MiSAC) is to promote the teaching of microbiology in schools and colleges.
Founded in 1969, it consists of experts who work voluntarily as representatives of the wide range of educational and scientific organisations that sponsor its activities.
MiSAC develops and publishes new ideas for the educational use of microorganisms, including practical activities, answers queries, gives talks, contributes to training courses, interacts with examination boards, science suppliers, publishers and industry, and is a recognised authority on the safe use of microorganisms.
The popular MiSAC annual competition, supported by sponsorship from professional organisations and industry, is closely linked to the National Curriculum.
MiSAC has charitable status.

We have tried to capture a range of resources, if you think there is anything we could add please let us know.
