Team 1223, The Blizzard Wizards - Our challenge this year was to find something affected by climate change and to solve that problem. Through our research, we found that an increase in temperature also led to an increase in the moisture in the air, which led to more mold. We found that ozone helps to kill mold spores, but can be toxic to humans. One of the best ways to clean off mold turned out to be soap and hot water.
