In this Science Buddies science project, you will observe the effects of short-term ultraviolet light exposure on bacteria. You can customize this experiment to include the nutrient agar plates, living K-12 E. coli, a glass spreader, and other supplies.

Ultraviolet light can damage DNA molecules. If a cell's DNA repair mechanisms can't keep up with the damage, mutations are the result. As harmful mutations accumulate, the cell eventually dies. How much ultraviolet light is too much for a bacterial cell?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great customer service! Mold on several plates. Sara answered all of my questions, made great suggestions, and guided me through the process very skillfully. The plates arrived quickly; however, when we opened the lids, we found mold on three of the ten plates. Happy with everything except the mold.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not sterile plates I bought these plates to save a few minutes before the lab. Unfortunately, the plates were contaminated and not sterile. 24/30 plates have growth on them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grew very well I got the vial in good shape, left it overnight, and was able to get really great growth. Just using a cotton swab produced fairly small colonies but using an innoculating hook spread out the bacteria and I was able to get almost full coverage. I’d definitely recommend.
