You have millions of bacteria living on your skin! While some bacteria are harmless, others cause illness and infectious diseases that can easily spread from person to person.
It's often said that one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of illness is washing hands with warm running water and soap - is this really true?
Use this complete bacteria hand washing experiment kit to test and discover the importance of handwashing for yourself!
With the included materials and instructions inside, you'll get to put different hand washing techniques to the test as you:
- See how much bacteria grows from your dirty hands
- Lather & wash hands with 3 different types of soap
- Observe the growth of bacteria as you test the effectiveness of the 3 different types of soap
- Compare the bacteria from your unwashed hands to the bacteria from your "clean hands" to help you learn more about proper hand washing techniques & hand hygiene
This bacteria hand washing experiment kit includes agar, petri dishes, sterile swabs, and more! Simply provide a few soap samples and let the experimentation begin!
You can even use the information and materials in this kit to develop your own hand washing science fair project!
