Why A Science Project ?

I decided to do a science project because I felt that it would better tell you all what I am actually interested in. My SAE Project is in the area of research & microbiology. It will help me and you all help answer a question that a lot of people don't know the answer to.


My SAE is a science project that is trying to answer this question : What Music does Bacteria Enjoy the Most? Whether it be Country music, Rap music, or Gospel music, i don't know, but i am committed to finding out which type of music that bacteria enjoys the most. Out of the three choices of music that i gave you all, which one do you think bacteria will enjoy the most?

More Facts

How Long is our Project Expected to Last ?

  • I will be doing three trials in total. It will take me a total of three weeks to complete this science project. One week for each trial.
  1. On the fist day, I will collect the bacteria from the Locust Trace bathrooms.
  2. On the second day, I will take each swab of bacteria and place them in my already prepared Petri Dishes.
  3. On the third day, I will turn on the music and have each dish of bacteria listen to a different type of music for exactly 24 hours.
  4. On the fourth day, I will measure how much the bacteria has grown.
  5. Finally, on the fifth day, I will write down and take photos of what I have found out & observed.

My Method

I will be working on the project every time I get the chance to. I will work on it to the best of my ability. I will also make sure that nothing or anyone gets into the way of me completing my project.

My Goals

  • Short Term : To have everything that is due for the science project, done.
  • Long Term : To be at the science fair, win the 1st place award, and move onto the state science fair.

Final Outcome

I hope to achieve the answer to my question. I will meet my goals because I am committed to finishing this project completely & showing my project to the judges to the best of my abilities.
