Abstract/Artist's Statement

Airborne microbes are not really a researched topic along with concerns regarding airborne toxins passed from one sick person to the next through the air, without physical contact, causing irritation. Airborne diseases are a threat to the common public and need to be studied correctly more to protect the public. This paper aims at a difference in the bacterial distribution in the air based on indoor vs. outdoor locations on Bard campus by exposing agar plates in the air at the respective sites. The results show that there was not a significant difference in the indoor vs outdoor bacteria because the study was short, and not a lot of variability was observed in the data.
