It is the purpose of this experiment to see if the hands of individuals exiting newer technology public restrooms are cleaner than the hands of people exiting older technology public restrooms. Our hypothesis is newer technology public restrooms (NTPR) result in a greater overall degree of hand cleanliness when compared to the older technology public restrooms (OTPR).
This paper fulfilled W. M. Sherrill's Honor Contract for Honors Science. His faculty supervisor was Professor HM Seitz of Johnson County Community College.
