Brushing With Bacteria

Primary Fluid Systems 

  Magna Cum Laude Award  - $100.00

 

View Project: virtualsciencefair.org/2013/shieh13k

Abstract: My project is to find out which product, between 3% hydrogen peroxide, mouth wash, and saltwater solution, will disinfect the toothbrush the best. Each of the subjects will brush with three toothbrushes for five days. After, dip a set of three toothbrushes into the fluids. After 2 minutes,swab onto the petri dishes and observe for 5 days.

Project Number: 7291  

Grades: 7-9 Health/Sport

Comments:
Interesting quiz. Neat web presentation.

What an interesting, practical (and gross) experiment! Very creative. Would have been helpful to include some background research into the project purpose, to show why the experiment was being done, as well as more safety information about hydrogen peroxide. Could include some pictures in the hypothesis and purpose pages, and close-ups of bacteria. Could have identified variables that would impact results, compared to no cleaning at all or cleaning in a dishwasher; checking different types of toothpastes, different brushes, toothpaste sanitizers, etc. Maybe a future project could include where/how to store the toothbrush. Good work, very interesting! Quiz nice but would have been nice to provide a score.

Abstract: The project abstract of my experiment is as follows. Firstly, to compare the effectiveness of natural antibiotics to conventional antibiotics. The natural antibiotics used in this experiment were Garlic, Goldenseal, Neem, Oil of Oregano, and Propolis. The conventional antibiotics used in this experiment were Amoxicillin and Erythromycin. Secondly, to compare the effectiveness of natural antifungals to conventional antifungals. The natural antifungals used in this experiment were Garlic, Goldenseal, Neem, Oil of Oregano, and Propolis. The conventional antifungals used in this experiment were Diflucan and Nystatin. Thirdly, to compare the effectiveness of the natural antibiotics to each other. In other words, to test whether certain natural antibiotics work better and are more effective than others. Also, to compare the effectiveness of the natural antifungals to each other. In other words, to see if certain antifungals are more effective and kill more fungi than others. Next, to test whether combining more than one natural antibiotic and whether combining natural plus conventional antibiotics works better than using natural or conventional antibiotics alone. Finally, to test whether combining more than one natural antifungal, and whether combining natural plus conventional antifungals works better than using natural or conventional antifungals alone.

View Project: virtualsciencefair.org/2013/muns13k

Abstract: The purpose is to determine whether ultraviolet light can be used to decontaminate stream water in water bottles by measuring the amount of bacteria produced from exposure to an ultraviolet (UV) light bulb. Exposure to UV light decreased bacterial colony counts by about 2/3 when using a stream water source and by about 4/5 when using a filtered stream water source. Exposure to UV light for up to 60 hours did not completely eliminate bacterial colony counts. In comparison, boiled stream water and tap water produced almost no bacterial colonies.

Vitamin C - Don't Destroy Me!

Virtual Science Fair 

  Cum Laude Award  - Merit Certificate

 

View Project: virtualsciencefair.org/2013/akbar13c

Abstract: I did this project to see if cooking foods with Vitamin C for a long period will decrease the vitamin level because Vitamin C is essential for our body every day. Cooking foods for a long time can destroy Vitamin C. So, when we eat that food, we can't get the Vitamin C in it. This experiment is to show how long should foods with Vitamin C be cooked for so that the Vitamin C doesn't get destroyed. That way, we get our Vitamin C every day. I will extract the juice and cook it over a stove. Then, using an iodine indicator, I will put drops of it in the cooked juice to indicate if the vitamin level went down. If it juice becomes darker against uncooked juice of the same fruit with the iodine indicator in it, it shows that the vitamin level went down and the Vitamin C was destroyed.

The Pressure is On!!

Virtual Science Fair 

  Cum Laude Award  - Merit Certificate

 

View Project: virtualsciencefair.org/2013/jadav13k

Abstract: It is an astounding fact that approximately 3% of kids today have high blood pressure. Blood pressure is the pressure the blood applies against the blood vessel walls as the heart pumps. The pressure increases when the heart contracts and pushes blood into the vessels and lowers when the heart relaxes. The ideal blood pressure for adults is approximately 120/80. However, for children, there is no one ideal blood pressure reading because blood pressure changes as the child grows. Did you know that kids can have high blood pressure too, even as infants? My project was designed to test whether a childís blood pressure was dependant on his or her age. In addition, I wanted to test how excess stress impacted their blood pressure. I proved that a childís blood pressure does increase with stress however when comparing children of the same age, I noted that other factors, such as diet, could also impact their blood pressure rate.

Soda Struck

View Project: virtualsciencefair.org/2013/jadav13z

Abstract: Soft drinks are the beverage of choice for millions of North Americans. They are easily accessible, tasty, and inexpensive. Once thought of as guiltless refreshment, soft drinks are now coming under examination for their contributions to the development of heart disease, type two diabetes, and other chronic conditions. The increase in soft drink consumption among adolescents is raising concern about the health effects of soft drinks. Sugar-containing soft drinks can be cariogenic and their low pH can cause erosion in teeth. Erosion of teeth is by-enlarge significantly more harmful than tooth decay, and causes unnecessary tooth hyper-sensitivity. In addition, studies have shown that that fructose can cause changes in the brain that triggers overeating. In addition, there are serious concerns about the effect of soft drinks on building bone and keeping it strong and healthy. I tested five different sodas: Dr. pepper, coke, diet coke, sprite, and mountain dew.

I will get my test subjects to take a test without T.V. and then make them do it again but with the loud distracting T.V. Then see if the results are better with T.V. or without T.V.

View Project: virtualsciencefair.org/2013/ifte13j

Abstract: My project is going to test how powerful an electromagnet is when powered by a AA cell battery. If that doesn't work, I'm going to use the normal required D cell battery. I searched how to do it easily as possible because I need it quick. I will need an iron bolt, wire, batteries, and magnets. I will wrap the wire around the iron bolt and connect the wire to the battery and see how many magnets it can hold.
