For Science week 2021, G5 had a look at some experiments in relation to health and hygiene.
First, we discussed the need for hand hygiene in today’s world. We used bread to find out what was best to keep our hands clean. We also made predictions on which slice of bread would develop mould first. Our test pieces included a fresh untouched slice of bread, a slice that was handled by unwashed hands, sanitised hands and hands washed with soap and water. We also rubbed one slice of bread on a table to discover how bacteria spreads.
Here are the results.
