Microbe garden
We were investigating microbes.  There are 3 types.  Bacteria fungi and virus.  We decided to create a microbe garden. We selected different food and monitored how much fungus and bacteria grew on the food
Fungal Experiment
We wanted to see what surfaces were cleanest. We rubbed bread on our carpet, floor, toilet, floor handle, laptop and monitored the microbe growth. We were amazed to discover the carpet was more contaminated than the toilet seat!
How far does your sneeze travel?
We filled a spray bottle with water and food colouring. We measured how far the spray travelled.
This is how far our sneeze will travel if we don't cover our mouths.
It travelled over 2 metres!
