The House of Horrible Germs


The House of Horrible Germs Program teaches children about the importance of proper hand washing for good health. The “HOG” exhibit is an 8 X 8 foot tent decorated inside with pretend germs and black lights. Children apply a black light sensitive lotion to their hands and enter the tent and see pretend germs. After students wash their hands, they re-enter the tent to see if all the germs are gone. This interactive exhibit is used in school settings, festivals, fairs and other community events.
