The University of Nebraska State Museum’s next Sunday with a Scientist program for children and families will focus on the science of food microbiology. The program is 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., April 15 at Morrill Hall.

“Food microbes: Good, Bad, and Ugly” will be presented by assistant professor Heather Hallen-Adams of UNL's Department of Food Science and Technology.

Visitors will learn about good and bad food microbes, the difference between fungi and bacteria and why those details matter.

Sunday with a Scientist is a series of presentations that highlight the work of UNL researchers while educating children and families on a variety of topics related to science and natural history.
