DESCRIPTION

With the Science Buddies Bacteria Discovery Kit, kids learn all about bacteria. Discover what they are, how they grow, the conditions that make them flourish, and the ones that make them perish.

Bacteria are weird. On the one hand, you want to take precautions with food prep to make sure their growth is inhibited. Like in the Minimizing Bacteria in the Thawing and Cooking of Meat project. On the other hand, some foods rely on live culture bacteriaand the more the merrier! Like in the Is That Really Bacteria Living in My Yogurt? project.

Instructions for this kit are available online. See below links to the instructions and more.

Use the Bacteria Discovery Kit with the following projects, found online at Science Buddies:
