The Glo-yo is an interactive, educational toy designed with children to help them learn how to wash their hands. It was effective in the school (Randle et al 2013), and increased hand hygine compliance in healthcare settings (Lary et al 2018).

We would like to know what you think about it, and would love to hear from you if you are a company who could help us manufacture it, so that it can be rolled out for the world to benefit from.

Come and meet some of the team at the Royal Society Summer Festival this July (2019) to find out how germs are so easily transmitted, and how you can wash your hands to reduce this.
