E. Coli Be Gone

Student: Olivia Giffen

District/Region: Chignecto Central Region

Event: 2012 Canada-Wide Science Fair

Grade 10 - South Colchester Academy

The project objective was to find an essential oil in which sprout seeds could be conditioned that in turn would inhibit E. coli. Disc diffusion was used to test 3 oils. Oil of oregano was found to be the most inhibitory, working equally well at 100% and 10% concentrations. The effect of conditioning sprout seeds with oil of oregano was determined in a growth trial.
