Bacteria Growing Kit


Growing bacteria at home is actually pretty simple. With adult supervision, kids in grade 3 and up can experiment with bacteria found in the air, on household surfaces, and even on their own hands!

Perfect to use for a science fair project!  This kit is what I suggest to use for the optional labs included in my Microbiology course.


This kit from Home Science Tools contains:

  • 20 plastic petri dishes
  • two 125 ml bottles of nutrient agar
  • iodine solution (an antibacterial)
  • ten 2-packs of sterile swabs (20 total)
  • blotter paper
  • disposable bags
  • project instructions
