I have not tried this myself, although I have heard
good success with it: Glo Germ. It is a harmless
fluorescent colorless substance you can plant
somewhere in the room, and after the end of the class,
you can show them the importance of washing their
hands after every lab by shining a black light on
them. I believe Flinn sells this stuff, but I don't
know if there is anything else available in a
traditional stockroom that would work just as well.
