Special thanks to my 3M mentor Dr. Belma who was able to provide 3M materials to help it come together.  I ran into a lot of challenges and mechanical problems along the way but I learned the lesson to never give up!

The 3M Discovery Education Young Scientist Challenge has been an awesome experience.  Definitely, my favorite part has been working with a 3M mentor.  Dr.  Appeaning has been a very valuable resource for me over the summer.  She not only helped me with deciding on 3M products, but I also bounced many scientific ideas off her.  It was so wonderful and fun to have an opportunity to work with a real professional scientist.
