Discovery NotesThe soil sample that the plaques were found is was gotten from the in campus area of UNT. After being unsuccessful in finding plaques in my previous two soil samples, I was frustrated and started looking for a place around campus that was the dirtiest, as instructed by our TA. There is a specific place at UNT where the campus squirrels are usually found. I assumed that place had their waste as well, so went and started digging the soil. While digging I found earthworms. I suspected the soil to be dirty because earthworms usually clean contaminated soil. So, I took the soil to the lab hoping for the best results and found plaques. The temperature was 45 degrees Fahrenheit and the air quality was 38 at 6:57 pm.
Naming NotesI named my plaque, Khadka, after my last name because my last name is very close to me. As suggested by our TA, I could not give my plaque a very silly name or violate the copyrights. Plus if my research does expand in the future, I want something very close to me to be recognized.
