Nancy B. always loved science. As a young girl she dreamed of being a vet, a marine biologist, an astronaut, or a biomedical engineer, and spent her summers attending space camp and marine biology camp. Now she uses her M.S. in science education to teach kids about bacteria—and to encourage an appreciation of science and the scientific method. Grow and observe the amazing world of bacteria, and learn about different types of germs! The Mighty Microbes Lab turns “eww” into “aha!” by encouraging study and understanding of (harmless) tiny colonies of bacteria and fungi. The kit includes 4 Petri dishes, a 250 mL standing, round-bottomed flask with volume markings (plus stopper), spreader for spreading bacteria, waterproof colony counter grid, loupe with 8x magnification, tweezers, funnel, pipette, gloves, and a nutrient agar packet (plus a recipe for making more agar). Record your experience and experiments in the included 22-Page activity journal!
