Melville Intermediate - A Year of Mould!

It's finally ended, due to us being able to stand the smell any longer (and due to the fact that the plastic has started allowing the sandwiches to seep through) our great Mould Experiments lasted for 53 weeks! Leigh, an ex pupil of Room 8 was able to file this report yesterday assisted by Bjork from the class of 2010 who filmed the video!

Leigh wrote this about the experiment. "Hi my name is Leigh and I going to tell you about the sandwiches we made one year ago in February 2009. On the 26th of February we made an experiment with bread, margarine and bread, margarine, bread, marmite and jam. We mixed these together and left them in sealed plastic bags in the classroom. We left them there for an entire year and watched as they gradually became mouldy. "

  1. This is a very interesting experiment - a great idea to watch the mould develop over a year!

    You might be interested to know that, a few years ago, I bought a McDonalds hamburger, and placed left it wrapped and in its McDonalds brown paper bag, in a wardrobe. It didn't get mouldy, it just dried out. Even after a couple of years it looked much the same, just a dry version! Why do you think that was? Perhaps you could try this, and see if you get the same result as me!
