Types of bacteria found around the home (Bacteria Morphology)
Bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms are the main cause of most disease or other unpleasant symptoms. We try to avoid such organisms by staying away from polluted or infected places and by using personal hygiene products such as soaps, detergents and antibacterial agents. Despite all our efforts, bacteria are present almost everywhere, and some bacteria can make us sick. 

In this project you will investigate to find out how many different types of bacteria can be found around the home. 

 Project description:
The number of bacteria types can be determined by the shape of bacteria under a microscope. Classifying the bacteria based on their shape is called morphology. This project requires access to a microscope with magnification of 400X or more.
