DRAFT 1:
1) Who's living environment in our sample contains the most BACTERIA? girls or guys?


2) We predict guys will be dirtier because of preconcieved sterotypes.


3) We will take samples from the 2nd and 3rd floors of Peabody Hall from specific areas such as Inside the Bathroom (sinks, showers, toilets, doorhandles) and Dorm Rooms (door handle, keyboards, mouses, etc). We will grow cultures from these samples for a period of time. We will count the number of colonies and compare the results. We will classify the colonines according to size. The comparing the number and sizes from the boys and girls living area we will draw conclusions on which area is dirtier.
