"1. In this experiment I will be testing to reveal if a specific colored surface affects bacterial growth and if so, which of the tested colors affects the most. (The colors I will be testing on this experiment will be red, yellow, green, blue, purple, white, and black) 2. I am interested in knowing if specific-colored surfaces impact bacterial growth and if so in which color impacts the most. Since I love drawing, painting, and doing handcrafts I found it very useful and interesting knowing this as a fact.3. After analyzing all the subject trials, averaging bacteria growth and sequence of the tested surfaces I conclude that color does affect bacterial growth. The color blue which reaches the highest mark of 38.4 averaged colonies per trial, resulting in blue being the color that most affects the spread and reproduction of bacteria. 4. I also believe that my project can be helpful to our community in so many areas such as, defining the right color that bathrooms, hospitals and other sanitary places should choose for their surfaces.
