What is microbiology for kids? Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms - or microorganisms for short. Microscopic means something is so small that you need a microscope to see it. In biology, an organism is any being that exhibits the properties of life.
So how is studying microscopic living organisms different for kids than for adults? And do you need a microscope to study microbiology?
First, HST's kits and microbiology tools let kids do much more than just read about the microbes (such as fungus, bacteria & protozoa) that are in a person's microbiome. Instead, they jump right in with observing, testing, and experimenting with culture media, agar plates, petri dishes & a whole bunch of living organisms & microbiology tools — just like a real microbiologist. Second, while using a microscope enriches a student's microbiology studies, it's not necessary! Several microbiology tools and products (like the Glo Germ Kits) let kids visualize a microbiome's parts & pieces with their naked eyes.
Learning about microbiology matters because it helps kids do many important things, such as prepare to fight infections & disease and maintain a healthy food supply.
For your kids experiments and observations, we provide test tubes with various live cultures and culture media, an animal cell model, glassware, petri dishes, sensitivity discs to test bacteria on cultured agar plates, a wide array of hands-on kits for studying bacterial cell growth, protozoa & cells on your body, and more!
Popular microscopic organisms for kids kits are protozoa cultures, the Microscopic Life Kit & live bacteria sets. Other top-sellers include our variety of hands-on study kits!
Equip curious learners, or perhaps even the next-generation microbiologists, with HST's microbiology tools, supplies & lab equipment. You can create a microbiology laboratory in your classroom, home, or anywhere you'd like!
