Paul Costantino brings the world of medical microbiology to the big screens. Through the use high definition video technologies students are visually immersed into a world where bacteria the size of a pin head becomes the size of basket ball. Such visual technology captured characteristics beyond that of static images,  provided classroom equity and discussion around student’s culture plates.

    Very good system Paul! The large TV’s and ‘real life’ images with video would seem ideal for capturing students’ attention in increasingly large classes. It would be good if you could get get time to make videos of the samples in addition to the static images. Well done!

    Good work Paul! It seems like the students really benefited from the whole system – which is great considering this was the first time it was run and it hasn’t been refined yet (with videos etc). 100% student satisfaction is an excellent result! Congrats
