It all started when she did a, science project in the eighth grade:. The project was t0.determine where the mo t bacteria' grows on the body. She found that the hands mad under the finger- nails was where the most bacteria was found. She did well with that project advancing to the regional contest. After joining FFA, as a freshman, she decided to take the project to the next level. She decided to deter- mine which :type of soap was most effective killing the most bacteria. Qver. :: anksgiv ag rata: ;slae l egan her Walnut Grove she set up her experiment using petri dishes with mild forms of bacteria. She used four dif- ferent soaps for the experi- ment. Hand sanitizer, liquid hand soap, Anti-bacterial liquid hand soap, and home made tangerine soap which she made herself. After applying the bacte- ria to the petri dishes she then placed paper punches soaked with the different types of soap in the center of the dishes: The dishes were placed in an incubator for 72 hours, and were monitored T 24 hours. After completing the incubation period Baker took slide samples and looked at them under a micro scope to see if the bac- teria was original or from air borne contaminant's. "I found that the nora bacterial soap was the most effective," she said. It took about two weeks to conduct her experiments, and about six months to pre- pare the project overall. The new .ExpressWay C-store and gas sta- tion will hold their grand opening this week starting Friday and continuing through Sunday. The opening will fea- ture many specials and door prizes.
