Hello everyone! I'd like to thank 3M and Discovery Education for having me in the Young Scientist Challenge. I'm happy to be in the top ten, and excited to get started on my innovation.

My interest in science was sparked by a great deal of factors. My parents definitely had a hand in my love for science. Being a doctor, my mother has taught me so much about medicine and biology. My dad is an engineer, so he gave me a ton of knowledge about crafting, building and inventing. The knowledge I have gained from my parents has served as a foundation for my invention.

I had my first discussion with my mentor Dr. Jonza yesterday.

My interest in science was originally sparked by my 1st grade teacher, Mrs.  Fullerton.  She required each of her students to perform a science fair experiment.   I have been doing science fair projects almost every year since then.   I heard about this contest at the State Science Fair.  I was encouraged to enter by my regional fair director.
