We don’t yet have a full understanding of the microbes that make our daily breads, even though humans have been making breads for over 10,000 years!  That’s why Dr. Erin McKenney and Prof. Rob Dunn are recruiting citizen scientists, home bakers, and science classrooms to make starters from flour and water to share their data with Team Sourdough.  Watch below for more information:

Here is a list of resources for you to get starter-ed including materials, curriculum guides, and lesson plans.

    I would be more than happy to be part of the science team. I currently do have an active starter and it’s about 4 month’s old. This is the first successful starter I have made.

    1. Awesome, Seth! Email the team at to get started 🙂
