Product Description:

My greatest school memory was the day my teacher asked me to swab the elevator button to “see what grows” in a petri dish. Over the next few days, I watched spellbound as colors and shapes of all sizes spread across the agar. And not necessarily spellbound in a good way, but I have been hooked on science ever since! Want to inspire curiosity (and a little hygiene!) in your children? Grow bacteria! This kit contains nearly everything you need for success: 20 plastic petri dishes, 2 bottles of nutrient agar, 1 bottle of iodine solution, 1 piece of blotter paper, 10 packages of sterile swaps (20 total), 4 disposal bags, an introduction to bacteria, and instructions to use the materials. Also included are step-by-step instructions for 4 experiments, plus ideas to design your own experiments. Microscope optional. Now…where did I put that cell phone. I wonder if it will grow something? ~Deanne

Publisher Description:

Growing bacteria at home is actually pretty simple. With adult supervision, kids grade 3 and up can experiment with bacteria found in the air, on household surfaces, and even on their own hands! This comprehensive kit allows you to buy everything that you need including a manual explaining how to grow bacteria in a petri dish. Culture a microbe colony large enough to see without a microscope and help your student build a unique science fair project using this kit and the scientific method!
