IEP strikes germs

IEP students had a lab that demonstrated how easily germs spread. First, they tossed around a small bag with a safe powder and asked each other questions. Then they checked their hands under the black light lamp to see how much powder actually stayed on hands. It was a lot!! Students conducted a lab experiment testing 4 different hand washing techniques – cold water without soap, cold water with soap, warm water with soap and hand sanitizing gel. Black light lamp revealed residue on hands after cold water without soap. After gel the germs were quite dead, even though still on our hands.
So, the conclusion is to wash hands with soap to remove all germs from our hands!
Wash hands and stay healthy,
IEP
