Excellent Review by
Excellent kit for demonstrating reasons for cleaning hands, desks, ...!
Easy, Fun, Review by
The instructions were easy to follow, and the agar was easy to heat up and distribute into the petri dishes. The agar solidified quickly and the swabbing was fun to do with my roommates. While bacteria growth occurred after a few days, it was not as much as I had anticipated. This could be due to the fact that I forgot to seal the dishes with tape, or maybe we all just had really clean hands! Plan on trying this again!
great tools Review by
Needed to use a microwave to liquidize agar and needed heat to grow our bacteria but in the end everybody's bacteria flourished!
Great Kit for Introduction to Bacteria Review by
This is our second order from Home Science Tools and we have been so pleased. Our daughter needed this kit for her science fair project. It had everything we needed and the agar was easy to prepare. The shipping was very quick, with great email communication.
Such a Fun Learning Experience Review by
This kit provided the best science fair project for my 5th grader! She had a blast experimenting and observing. We also did the same experiment for my 7th grader - just added some extra variables and made it a step up! Wonderful kit! Everything you need is there and the instructions were easy to understand! Will definitely be purchasing from this site again! Thank you for the 100's my children made on their science fair projects!
