Conditions affecting bacterial growth. (Junior Division).
Bacteria are everywhere, out-numbering all other forms of life. The
first organisms on earth were much like the bacteria today. Among the
biological world, they have the widest range of habitats. There is more
bacteria in the human mouth than all the people that have ever lived.
Bacteria live on human beings and everything that they touch. People
gather millions of bacteria every second of the day. They can cause
disease, but they also have many positive effects. Bacteria can help us
prepare food, chemicals, and medicines. This project explores some of
the places where bacteria may grow and looks at growth dynamics given
certain environments. This study is useful in illustrating bacterial
growth, suggesting potential cleaning and general sanitation solutions
