Imaginative Teaching Resources & Inspirational Career Ideas from the Chilled Food Industry

We have fun teaching resources including Nanobugs tattoos, Glo-Germ hand washing training kits, our MicroTrumps card game, fridge thermometers and more.


A pack of 28 A6-sized cards – two each of 14 organisms, illustrated with an electronmicrograph and a fun cartoon Nanobugs character.

Alongside these are technical data and general information on each organism and their effects on humans, together with a ‘dangerousness’ score.

Players use the microorganisms on the cards, including Clostridium botulinum and Lactobacillus acidophilus to trump each other in categories such as ‘dangerousness’ and minimum pH levels needed to allow growth.

Can be used to play trumps or as a reference data source

Chilled food is kept fresh and at its peak quality in the fridge. But fridges have to be the correct temperature (0-5°C). These thermometers glow green when the temperature is correct. These are great for lessons and also allow students to take the learning out of classroom – and even improve aspects of food safety at home.
