GREEN BAY – Students from across the state gathered at Lambeau Field Dec. 9 for the Tiny Earth in Titletown research symposium.

At the event, students had the opportunity to present their scientific findings to mitigate the public health crisis of antibiotic resistance and to help spread awareness on the issue.

The symposium, which relaunched as an in-person event this year after the three-year hiatus, was hosted by a committee of Tiny Earth instructors at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, College of Menominee Nation and St. Norbert College.

The evening included a student poster presentation session, tours of Lambeau Field and a keynote from Dr. David Andes, a professor of Medicine and Medical Microbiology & Immunology and the chief of Division of Infectious Disease within the Department of Medicine at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Those involved said the mission Tiny Earth initiative is twofold: address the antibiotic crisis and counter the shortage of professionals in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM disciplines.
