Of Spice & Men – Day 2

Day 1 — Day 2 — Day 3Day 4Day 5

.
Summary:
Today was the second day of the “Of Spice & Men” project, and it was really more about prep work than anything else. Students started off by making a hypothesis about which plants/spices might have germ-killing effects. Then, they set about making agar plates, which are gel-filled Petri dishes that you can use to grow microorganisms. In other words, they are like “germ-food Jello.” The agar plates are being refrigerated overnight. Tomorrow, the students will add germs and spices to the dishes. And after we let them grow over the weekend, we should finally be able to solve this mystery, once and for all!
