Discover the world of micro-organisms with this unique protozoa culture kit! Just add water to this special dry protozoan culture and in 24 hours you'll have your own living culture of mixed protists and algae to study.

The culture will change each day as different protist species become more prevalent. Allow 3 days for the culture to fully mature, but study it each day. Not only will the protists you find vary from day to day but you'll also find different protozoans at the top or side of the culture than at the bottom of the culture. You can spend hours sampling this culture each day as you hunt for, identify, and study the habits of different protists.

This complete kit includes the dry protist culture, a cup to use as a hatching container, food, identification key, and instructions. (We recommend plain microscope slides and coverslips to observe these organisms with your 400X microscope.)

Ideas for Science Fair Experiments:

  • What are the effects of light and temperature on protists?
  • What are the effects of household chemicals or cleaners on protists? Do different species (such as amoeba and euglena) react differently?
  • Do different kinds of protists grow in different environments? Compare those in this culture kit with those grown from pond water or grass clippings.
