Tiny Earth’s network is ever-expanding, and we want you to be a part of it. There are many great ways to get involved, from becoming a Tiny Earth Partner Instructor (“TEPI”) and implementing the curriculum at your own institution to backing our efforts with a financial gift. We’re happy to have you as part of our Tiny Earth—welcome!

Become a TEPI!
Tiny Earth Partner Instructors are undergraduate and high school instructors who have attended one of Tiny Earth’s bi-annual trainings (at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the winter and at the University of Connecticut in the summer) and are actively implementing the curriculum at their own institutions. Not sure if Tiny Earth is right for you and your school? Contact Executive Director Sam Rikkers to start the conversation.


Support Tiny Earth
Part of the power of the Tiny Earth network is the low barrier to entry. We want instructors around the world to be able to attend training and implement the course at minimal cost. Your gift supports travel grants for instructors, supplies, administrative support, and costs associated with the annual Tiny Earth Symposium, which brings together students and instructors from across the globe. Thank you for your support!


Get Involved
Tiny Earth relies on partnerships with school, communities, and companies to achieve its antibiotic discovery mission. From collecting soil samples and performing community outreach to providing equipment and services, there are myriad ways to connect with our ever-growing network. Contact us to get involved.
