Event description

Description

Some estimates claim that there are more bacteria on the planet than there are stars in the universe. Microorganisms live everywhere we can imagine, and a few places we can't. In this module, students will discover this for themselves by taking and culturing samples from their surroundings.

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.
