Glo Germ Powder Kit
This unique Glo Germô Powder experiment kit is a memorable way to show how germs spread and how important it is to keep surfaces clean! It can be easily adapted for a great science fair project.
This experiment kit comes with a 4-oz. bottle of Glo Germô powder, which simulates the behavior of real germs when you sprinkle it on a countertop, fresh fruits and vegetables, or the outside of other objects (such as door knobs or microwave handles). Using the included UV black light, these "germs" will glow and show kids how clean or dirty something is as well as how easy it is to spread germs from one surface to another. Comes with directions for completing three experiments. Batteries included. The 4 ounce bottle is sufficient for hundreds of demonstrations.
This kit now includes an improved, brighter UV black light. The 9-bulb LED black light is bright enough to see the GloGermô residue from a distance of over five feet. It has a convenient push-button on/off switch that is easy to use.
Science Fair Project Ideas:
- Test different soaps and cleaners by washing a counter or other
smooth surface after sprinkling powder over it. Can you still see
the "germs" when you turn on the black light?
- Sprinkle the powder on fresh fruits and vegetables, then wash
them, and test with the black light.† Does using soap, a rag,
or a scrub brush remove more powder?
- What temperature of water is most effective at removing the
powder from vegetables or a countertop?

I used this product in a ServSafe course. It worked well but I think that the gel or oil would work much better in the manner I used it. I will be getting some soon to test it out. My order came very quick. Kudos.
- Sunday, November 14, 2010Big hit in the science clubReviewed By: VaNessa
I am a parent interested in teaching children more about science and I recently started a science club at my children's school. Everytime I buy a product from Homesciencetools it is a big hit! The glo germ kit worked great! It totally sent the message of how germs are so easily spread! I now have parents asking for teaching recommendations for their children about other science topics since the glo germ kit worked so well. I just refer them to the website! Thank you!!

I am a career discovery teacher teaching a unit on health/science. I try to teach the students how dirty everything is by just showing them the disinfecting wipes I use every afternoon to clean the tables, but this does not work. So, I dusted the powder on JUST the back of the chairs they sat in and at the end of class (talking about germs), I turned off the light and showed them where they all touched around the room. They were amazed (and disgusted) at how they managed to spread that powder. After this, I asked them to use proper hand washing techniques and then put the light on their hands again, and showed how even proper techniques didn't get all the "dirt and germs" off their hands.
- Tuesday, February 24, 2009How germs really do spread!Reviewed By: Lilly
This is a great thing for some kids to demonstrate to other kids of 'How Germs can Spread'. You should pick some students from the class to put the glo germ powder on their hands. After about 15 minutes of class time, the students you had picked to put it on their hands should have had touched a lot of other students to spread the powder. Turn out the lights then go around the room seeing how many people have the powder on them. This will show them how germs can spread. They will imagine that if that powder was real germs. First tell them they are real germs just for a few seconds to see how they react then tell them about the glo germ kit. That's how herms can be spread! It would be a smart move to buy this product!! I voted 5 STARS!!Read More Reviews
