Rachel's Science Fair Project


Home

Eva's niece, Rachel Dunn, and her family visited us last March. Here's an excerpt from an e-mail Rachel's mom sent us.

"Rachel's science fair project was to see which soap was the best antibacterial. She took two apples, cut them in slices. All four of us went outside and played in the dirt, rinsed our hands in the pond. Then each of us washed our hands with a different kind of soap, then rubbed our hands over a couple of slices of apple and put them in a jar. There was also one jar that we rubbed our hands on the apples without washing hands at all. Obviously, this jar of apples deteriorated the fastest and were gross in no time. Her hypothesis was that the "antibacterial" soap would slow the deterioration of the apples more than the other soaps. But she was wrong - it was the goats milk soap. . . She made a 100 on her project and was very excited."
