I am so sorry for not updating you for a while. I have been measuring the lichen samples in the student garden. it takes a lot of time! So please forgive me as I tell you all my problems.
So, finally Ms. Brown found a new program that allows you to use a grid, keep your samples filed, and edit your measurements. It is so much better than image j except...
IT GLITCHES AND TAKES YOU BACK HOME!!!!
I had to learn how not to overwhelm the program but it worked out well in the end. I finished all 30 lichen samples and am waiting for the next 90 or so to arrive so that I can repeat the process all over again.
Anyway, I am very sorry for not updating, as much as I am sorry for complaining. I am also sad that my mold experiment has not grown any mold yet, but this is not an excuse for not washing your hands. Please and thank you for reading my post. Comments and questions are welcome and encouraged as is ideas for a new experiment.
