Abstract

The increasing risk of antibiotic resistance and correlating decrease in effective clinical treatments is a serious issue worldwide. One source antibiotic tolerance derives from biofilm infections: collectives of bacteria surrounded by an extracellular matrix that adhere to surfaces. Here we outline a board game designed to raise awareness and knowledge of biofilms in young learners.
