Harmony Hill students experiment with “germs”

Germ science experiment at Harmony HillHow effective is hand washing at killing germs? That’s what Ms. Geis’s 4th grade class at Harmony Hill aimed to find out in a recent science experiment!

The students put Glo Germ Gel on their hands to simulate the number of germs we typically encounter. They examined their hands under a black light, followed by a thorough hand washing (singing the birthday song a couple of times). They examined the results under the black light, determining that hand washing is an effective, important way to stay safe from harmful germs!

Preparing our students for success in tomorrow’s world.
