Abstract

This work details a science experiment on garlic's antibiotic properties designed to acquaint high school and introductory-level undergraduate students with concepts such as natural antibiotics, bioactive substances, and biosafety.

A list of materials is provided, along with safety and procedural instructions, discussion topics, and assessment suggestions.
