[Music playing]

An “X” explodes into crystals, microscopes and math equations. Eric pulls lightning from a tablet. He has short brown hair and wears a blue t-shirt.

Singing, WHAT A HIT, IT'S NOT A TRICK, IT'S SCIENCXPLOSION, JUST FOR YOU, COOL AND NEW, SCIENCXPLOSION.

A title on a red background reads: ScienceXplosion

Eric wears a bathrobe over his t-shirt. There is a night cap on his head. He holds a large teddy bear and tissues.

The narrator says, OH, ERIC YOU DON'T LOOK SO GOOD. I'M GLAD YOU DECIDED TO STAY HOME TODAY SO YOU CAN REST AND ...

Eric starts to sneeze.

The narrator says, AND NOT SPREA ...

Eric holds back a sneeze.

The narrator says, NOT SPREAD YOUR GERMS ...

[Drumroll]

Eric sneezes.

The narrator says, TO OTHERS ... AWWW POOR ERIC ... I KNOW IT'S NO FUN BEING SICK.

Eric holds a handkerchief. It is covered in green spots on one side.

The narrator says, BLEH!

Eric sneezes and green balls appear in his hand.

[Narrator laughing]

Eric blows the balls away.

The narrator says, DID YOU KNOW, ERIC, THAT OUR HANDS ARE COVERED WITH GERMS LIKE BACTERIA?

Eric looks at his hands.

The narrator says, YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO SEE THE BACTERIA BECAUSE THEY'RE TOO SMALL. BUT I KNOW HOW TO SHOW YOU WHAT THEY WOULD LOOK LIKE IF THEY WERE ACTUALLY VISIBLE TO OUR EYES. DO YOU WANT TO SEE THEM?

Eric nods and blows his nose.

[Honking]

Eric sits at a table with toy dinosaurs on it, along with a yellow container.

The narrator says, I KNOW YOU'RE FEELING SICK TODAY ERIC, BUT THIS EXPERIMENT WILL NOT BE TIRING AT ALL, IN FACT, SUPER EASY! OKAY, SO WHAT YOU HAVE IN FRONT OF YOU IS SOME CORNSTARCH, WHICH WE'RE GOING TO PRETEND IS BACTERIA. WHY DON'T YOU GO AHEAD AND COVER YOUR HAND WITH THE CORNSTARCH?

Eric reaches toward the container and hesitates.

The narrator says, IT'S OKAY, ERIC. DON'T WORRY ... IT'S NOT REAL ... WE'RE ONLY PRETENDING ... FOR SCIENCE'S SAKE!

Eric nods. He puts one hand in the corn starch in the container. His hand is covered with white powder.

The narrator says, GREAT JOB, NOW LET'S SEE HOW BACTERIA GETS SPREAD. ERIC, WHY DON'T YOU PLAY WITH YOUR DINOSAURS?

[Music playing]

Eric points to the toy dinosaurs. He shrugs and moves one toy around. Eric smiles.

The narrator says, YOU'RE DOING GREAT, ERIC. YOU'RE REALLY A PRO WHEN IT COMES TO PLAYING WITH THE DINOS.

Eric gives a thumbs up.

The narrator says, WHY DON'T YOU SHAKE YOUR OWN HAND AND CONGRATULATE YOURSELF!

Eric looks at his hands. He brings them both together and shakes.

The narrator says, NOW CHECK OUT WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR OTHER HAND. IT'S ALSO COVERED IN CORNSTARCH.

Eric spreads his hands and touches the cornstarch on them.

The narrator says, AND LOOK AT YOUR TOYS!

Eric picks up a dinosaur that is covered in cornstarch.

The narrator says, CORNSTARCH WILL STICK TO YOUR HANDS, YOUR TOYS, ANY PEOPLE, OR OTHER OBJECTS YOU TOUCH ... AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT BACTERIA DOES.

Eric holds up his hands.

The narrator says, IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA TO WASH YOUR HANDS NOW, ERIC.

Eric claps his hands together.

The narrator says, NO, NO, NOT LIKE THAT, ERIC. YOU'LL NEED TO USE CLEAN WATER AND SOAP. LET'S TRY IT STEP BY STEP.

Eric pulls a bowl of water over and a dish with a bar of soap in it.

The narrator says, STEP 1: TAKE THE SOAP ...

Eric picks up the bar of soap.

The narrator says, THEN WET YOUR HANDS AND RUB THEM WITH THE SOAP TO MAKE FOAM.

Eric dips his hands and the soap in the bowl of water. He rubs his hands together with the soap.

The narrator says, GOOD, DO THAT FOR AT LEAST TWENTY SECONDS.

Eric rubs his hands rapidly.

The narrator says, MAKE SURE YOU RUB THE FRONT AND BACK OF YOUR HANDS, BETWEEN YOUR FINGERS AND UNDER YOUR NAILS. PERFECT, JUST LIKE THAT! REMEMBER TO RINSE YOUR HANDS WELL AND DRY THEM WITH A TOWEL.

Eric dips his hands in the water. He reaches for a towel and rubs his hands.

The narrator says, GREAT JOB, ERIC!

[Trumpets]

[Music playing]

Eric stands at a blackboard. He uses chalk to draw a large button. Eric smiles and presses the button. The blackboard changes to a video screen.

An animated hand is shown. Small pink bacteria appear on a blue background.

The narrator says, DID YOU KNOW THAT BACTERIA ARE ACTUALLY SUPER TINY LIVING THINGS? USUALLY, BACTERIA ARE MADE UP OF A SINGLE CELL. SOME BACTERIA ARE HARMFUL BECAUSE THEY CAN CAUSE INFECTIONS.

A child turns on a faucet.

The narrator says, THAT'S WHY IT'S IMPORTANT TO WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN.

The child washes their hands.

A picture shows a bowl of yogurt with strawberries and granola on top.

The narrator says, BUT OTHER BACTERIA ARE VERY HELPFUL. FOR EXAMPLE, THEY CAN HELP WITH FERMENTATION, WHICH IS WHAT HELPS US TO MAKE YOGURT!

Yogurt parfaits are in glasses.

The narrator says, WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT BACTERIA COULD ALSO BE DELICIOUS!

A picture shows a person pouring yogurt over a fruit bowl.

[Music playing]

Eric goes to a chair in his robe and cap. He carries the teddy bear and a bottle of water.

The narrator says, GREAT IDEA, ERIC. THE BEST WAY TO RECOVER FROM A FLU IS TO REST AND DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS.

Eric nods and holds the bear.

The narrator says, YOU CAN HAVE FUN WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND TEST OUT THIS EXPERIMENT, AT HOME, TO SEE HOW BACTERIA SPREADS.

Eric nods.

The narrator says, BUT DON'T FORGET TO WASH YOUR HANDS REALLY WELL
WHEN YOU'RE DONE ....

Eric yawns. He gives a thumbs up.

The narrator says, AND THEN, MAYBE REFUEL ON SOME GOOD BACTERIA BY EATING SOME YUMMY YOGURT. IT'S NOT MAGIC…

Eric shakes his head.

The narrator says, IT'S SCIENCE!

[Lullaby playing]

Eric nods and leans his head against the chair. He waves the bear’s arm.
