Save the Antibiotics! Hands-on learning about antibiotic resistance

15 Nov 2018

Last weekend, over 500 children and parents took a peek into the world of bacteria and antibiotics at the World Antibiotics Awareness Week (WAAW) library workshop, organised by the School’s Singapore Social, Lifestyle and Infection Networks Group (Singapore SLING).

Held at Jurong Regional Library on 10-11 November, the event featured different stations for children to learn about bacteria, antibiotics and hand hygiene, including a station where participants could see the germs on their hands glow.

This is the third year that the Singapore SLING team has organised this event, led by Assistant Professor Clarence Tam, as part of the World Health Organization’s annual World Antibiotics Awareness Week, a global campaign to increase awareness of antibiotic resistance and promote the correct use of antibiotics.
