Tiny Titans: Can Silver Nanoparticles Neutralize E. coli Bacteria?
In this Science Buddies science project, you’ll determine whether silver nanoparticles can have a noticeable antibacterial effect and, if so, what concentration of silver nanoparticles is needed to achieve this effect. You can customize this kit to include the nutrient agar media plates, different graduated cylinders, forceps, E. coli K12, and other supplies needed to complete this experiment.
