stirring sticks
bastões de vidro


Explanation:
Se for no contexto de Química e/ou Laboratório, o termo mais usado é bastão de vidro, o qual é geralmente usado com o béquer. Lembro-me bem disso das famosas aulas de bioquimica na faculdade. Em ingles, o termo mais tecnico é stirring rod or glass rod. Se nao for nesse contexto ou se o bastao nao for de vidro, sugiro que você use expressoes que descrevam o bastao, como bastao de poliestireno, bastao de metal, ou mesmo um palito misturador.
