Our goal was to see whether the "five second rule" (the myth where if you dropped pieces of food onto the floor, you would have within five seconds to pick it up before it gets contaminated) was true or false, a subject commonly debated over. n In addition to finding this answer, we experimented on the effects of time, surfaces, and types of food to the rule using agar and petri dishes. n Collecting all the data, we would then determine whether the rule would cause any diseases, being applicable or not, and also looked at various opinions. n It was gross-tastic!
