Portable Bacterial Testing kit


Test for bacteria amounts and types in manhattan subway stations.  This would be accomplished with an all in one bacterial testing kit.   It would be similar to a backpack, but have an incubator built in.  Also there is a compartment to keep swabs, petri dishes, test tubes, and the various chemical solutions used to detect certain types of bacteria

Future Steps: Would then create a visualization of the test results pertaining to each subway station.  For future fun i would also then like to experiment with training the bacteria to react to various stimuli.

For the training i was inspired by this video of bacteria building a pyramid:
