WHAT IS IT?
A “comic book” detailing the rise of antibiotic resistance in bacteria
WHAT DO WE LEARN?
The rise of antibiotic-resistant bacteria is a growing health issue worldwide. (MRSA is only one
example of this developing medical problem). How drug resistance occurs and spreads among
diverse bacteria is an important topic discussed in class. This “comic book parable” of how the
crisis is unfolding in the real world is interesting and thought provoking.

WHAT IS IT?
Mitosis in plant and animal cells,
painted on a series of tiles that can
be assembled in different ways.
WHAT DO WE LEARN?
When plant and animal cells divide,
some of the processes are the same,
and some are different. Several lec-
tures in the class covered aspects of
mitosis and cell division. This art-
work illustrates the similarities and
differences between plant and animal
mitosis in a visually pleasing manner.
