Tiny Earth Student Group

Join the Tiny earth student group


Tiny Earth has partnered with over 600 instructors around the world that support 14,000+ students each year! As our network expands, we are looking ways to connect the Tiny Earth community on a deeper, more engaging level beyond scientific research. In the coming year Tiny Earth will launch a Tiny Earth Student Group to connect Tiny Earth Earthlings from all over the world!

In this student-focused group, Tiny Earthlings may provide a voice for their class in network wide resources, curriculum, and activities and act as a liaison to the network for their Tiny Earth section! Additionally, students can connect with Tiny Earth students from different institutions and collaborate to advise and lead new Tiny Earth activities. Join us this semester for discussions on antibiotic discovery, inclusive learning, and leveraging the Tiny Earth research experience.
