WE ARE DOING A SCIENCE EXPERIMENT TESTING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF KILLING DIFFERENT GERMS WITH DIFFERENT CLEANERS. WE HAVE CONSTRUCTED AN INCUBATOR USING A AQUARIUM WITH A HEATED BOTTOM COIL. COVERING THE TOP WITH SARAN WRAP HAS HELPED TO GET THE TEMP UP TO APPROX 96 DEGREES. WE USED CHICKEN WIRE TO CREATE A PLATFORM TO REST THE PETRI DISHES. SHOULD WE PLACE A PLATE OF WATER BENEATH TO CREATE A HUMID ATMOSPHERE. WILL THIS METHOD WORK?
