Event: 2009 Canada-Wide Science Fair

Grade 10 - South Colchester Academy

This project studied the effects of antimicrobial properties. Two spices were tested, (Paprika, and Oregano), to find if they could inhibit the growth of either a gram-negative bacteria, or a gram-positive bacteria.

The results were that Organic Paprika can inhibit the growth of Pseudomonas putida a gram-negative bacteria, and also Staphylococcus epidermis a gram-positive bacteria, at 8%, better then the other substances tested.
