    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I thoroughly enjoy learning about science, especially microorganisms. Sandy is extremely knowledgeable as she used to work at the American Red Cross as a Lab Technician. Sandy is a wonderful instructor and has led me down the path of eventual employment. Not only is Stevens-Henager a wonderful education opportunity, they have a career adviser on hand whose only goal is to get you a job after you graduate. My favorite part is the ability to audit a class at any time- for FREE. The school has multiple other resources included in the tuition: books, tutoring, library access, and fun activities every month.

    Course highlights:

    Microbiology is the study of microorganisms. We have learned to differentiate between the 5 classifications: bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa, and helminths (worms). We have lecture and lab each week. The labs are intriguing and fun but still educational. For example, last week we swabbed a source that we thought would be ridden with organisms- after culturing we found out that a dollar bill held the most (and worst) disease causing organisms- even fungus!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask questions and don't be afraid to be wrong. The class is a deeper level to high school biology, and I found it very enjoyable. Sandy's method of see one, do one, teach one solidifies the information in your head and commits many processes to muscle memory.
