Students perform hands-on experiments to visualize bacteria around them, identify light as a wave, discover a spectrum of wavelengths beyond visible light, and grow their own bacteria. They’ll also see how science can solve real-world problems as they find out what actual entrepreneurs like biomedical engineer Colleen Costello do to outfit hospitals with a light source that automatically cleans while you use it. Activity Kits include 60-page full-color educator guide with lesson plan, student notebooks and worksheets, online video tutorials for activities, entrepreneur video, and reusable experiment materials.
