Event description

Description

Students get a chance to create their own glowing bacterial art. Students use non-pathogenic E. coli that expresses fluorescent proteins to draw their image. Students can choose between green, yellow, blue, red, and orange fluorescent bacteria or use a combination of all five. The plates are incubated overnight and the following day students get to view their glowing bacteria art under a black light.

They will also investigate how well hand sanitizer really works on bacteria. Students begin by taking a swab of their own hands and placing it on bacterial growth media. Then students clean their hands with sanitizer and repeat the same process. Students return the next day to see how big of a difference the sanitizer actually made.
