So we wanted to study something about biofilms. Our original idea was to look at how biofilms grow on different surfaces and we had a great idea to try looking at their growth on different types of paint, as biofilms are often a problem for ships and other anthropogenic things in the water. But that idea proved to be too difficult, so we decided on 'How the Polarity of a Surface Affects the Growth of Biofilms'.
And here is a link to our presentation!
yeah bacterial cultures!
I hope this video works, it is something that was always running in the lab.
Hard at work
This is the 'rig' that all of our slides were hanging from. It was hung from the Institute's dock, and stayed there for a week.
Needless to say, I worried about it constantly for the whole week.
