Fun with Science

We are doing science experiments to test if there is more bacteria on our hands before or after washing our hands in soap and water.  We are growing the bacteria on agar plates.  We wrote a hypothesis and method.  Now we will wait to see the results.

  1. Great experiment. I look forward to seeing the results and hopefully seeing that we should be using soap to clean our hands! - Jamie's Mum

  2. I wonder where the bacteria will grow first! Joe is thinking his group's dish because of the mud he gets on his hands playing soccer! Joe's Mum
