In my science fair project, I have 10 different types of bread. I will try 
to find out which bread will grow the most mold and why. I have to restart 
my project because my method of measuring the mold was inaccurate: I 
measured the area in square centimeters, with a ruler. I was wondering if 
you knew a more accurate way of measuring the mold, because it does not 
grow in a symmetrical or square shape. Is it possible to measure the mold 
in depth, too?
I would appreciate any help.
