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?

Note: This kit is very similar to the Student Bacteria Experiment Kit sold by suppliers like Nasco.

  • two 125 ml bottles of nutrient agar
  • iodine solution (an antibacterial)
  • ten 2-packs of sterile swabs (20 total)

Look at Agar & Petri Dishes for individual items.

Great choice for science fairs and small classes! Review by
The Bacteria Kit is AWESOME!! My kit arrived just after the great ice-days of '13. (North Texas was out of school three or more days due to icy conditions.) I couldn't believe how soon it arrived after placing the order and how quickly my freeze-breakage was shipped out!!
Fun and Easy Science Fair Review by
I purchased this kit for my daughter to use for her science fair project. The instructions were easy to follow. It was perfect for her 6th grade science fair project. It also arrived fast and on time, and the prices was great. Couldn't have asked for a better deal.
Great Kit Review by
This kit came with everything advertised and it got to me very fast. i couldn't be happier.
great starting point Review by
This is a great starting point for bacteria experiments. I used this with our afterschool program and after getting comfortable with it was able to order individual items that fit our needs.
Science Fair Review by
Everything was as advertised, and our kit arrived in perfect condition. This made it fun to collect from surfaces around the house and then see what was best and killing it. The one review mentioned lids not being tight...I don't remember any dishes/lids even in college being a secure fit as you do need some air flow for the bacteria to grow. all in all we are happy with this product
