    15 petri dishes and the chance to collect bacteria! LOL we are doing an experiment on whether or not hand sanitizers work. We aren't doing the inside of the mouth or cell phones, we are doing areas students and staff use a lot. The library, the computer lab, the nurses office, the cafeteria, the bathrooms, the front office, places we should get great samples from.

    Cool idea, and the results should be pretty dramatic- and scary! [​IMG]
