In this Science Buddies science project, you will test several disinfectants to see which ones work best to decontaminate the surface of a cutting board. You can customize this kit to include the nutrient agar plates, cotton balls, dissecting forceps, and other supplies needed to complete this experiment.

Before beginning this project check the rules of your science fair as many science fairs prohibit the use of microorganisms that are not identified to species. Do NOT use this experiment if those rules exist in your science fair.

Germs are everywhere! We try and clean our home with disinfectants, but do we really get rid of all the germs? Find out with this "hands-on" experiment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great forceps I purchased the straight edge forceps for my daughter's H.S. science project. She had to put small disks onto a plate with agar. They worked well for her and were easy to hold and control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for science fair Ordered these for son's 8th grade science fair project. Arrived exactly at time promised. Stored in refrigerator until ready to use. Plate inoculation was easy. Incubated in basement. Grew beautiful (actually disgusting!) specimens in a few days. Son was amazed and fascinated. Science fair conquered!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use and perfect for student micro projects Trying to teach students the proper method for making agar dishes can be difficult. At times when they make their own the agar is lumpy and uneven, making it difficult to observe. The only suggestion I would make is order more than you need because the plastic on the dishes is fairly thin and on every purchase I have made, typically at least one dish is cracked and cannot be used. Other than that these are so much easier than preparing your own.
