Students were placed into groups of four and were given a variety of materials to make bacteria with (not real bacteria - they used pipe cleaners, toothpicks, foam spheres and foam rectangular prisms). Then it was time for the real fun to begin: each student had their hand swabbed under different conditions to see how much bacteria was present:
