“C’est le dernier jour de notre visite en France!” DAY 5 – Vendredi
LOUIS PASTEUR – Meet Louis Pasteur, an amazing chemist and microbiologist. He found that when certain micro-organisms grew, they were responsible for the deterioration of milk, wines and beer. His contributions were enormous and throughout his life he continued to carry out research in areas such as microbiology, immunology and stereochemistry. His focus was on the education of people about the spread of diseases and germs and the best way to prevent infection.
Once again, the question we often ask is – where would we be today without the life-saving work and discoveries of such amazing scientists as Louis Pasteur?
These stories are compelling historical stories. Told in the form of a virtual biographical interview, called a BioView®, they capture students attention immediately.
