Bacteria Experiment Kit

Item# BE-BACTKIT

Explore the fascinating diversity of bacteria in your own environment!

With this kit you'll be able to experiment with bacteria in the air, on surfaces, and even on your hands. You can also test the anti- bacterial effects of common household cleaners. This experiment/study kit comes with all the supplies you need for growing your own bacteria cultures. You just provide some common household cleaners.

Want to use this kit for a science fair project? See our experiment ideas below to get you started and check out this bacteria article.

Science Fair Project Ideas:

  • How effective are different types of household cleaners against bacteria in the kitchen or bathroom? Try different brands.
  • Do some natural substances (like garlic and tea tree oil) have antibacterial effects?

Does what it should Review by
This kit works well. The instructions are good, although you may need to remind the young experimenter to pour a decent amount of agar into each dish, and rub the swabs firmly enough against the surfaces that are being tested.
Worked well with my class size. Review by

A fun learning kit Review by
I used this as a homeschooling tool. The instructions to prepare the dishes were easy to follow and the kids were excited to do the experiment. Definitely received my moneys worth with this kit.
