What is your favorite subject in school?: 
My favorite school subject is science of course! I have loved science since 1st grade!!
What kind of extra-curricular activities or hobbies do you enjoy participating in?: 
I enjoy building LEGO Robots because it is fun to design and create new robots to show the world! I am also an avid drummer and I love playing music because it is very creative. Also, I practice my "magic". I love doing card tricks to my friends and family, after all, magician's are almost like "clever scientist's". ;)
What career do you want to pursue and why?: 
I think I would like to pursue in Agriculture Technology/Engineering because I love technology and the mechanics of things and I am the son of a Potato Farmer and I love learning all about how the machinery works and how the plants grow.
Why did you enter in the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge?: 
The main reason I entered the YSC is because I love a challenge, and a scientist challenge seemed perfect for me! Plus, who wouldn't like 50k in bonds? =)
What do you enjoy most about science?: 
The thing I love about science is that it is simply amazing how everything in our world (and outside it) works! I love to explore and learn new amazing facts about any kind of science and I read A LOT. I am a very curious person!
Anything else you'd like to tell us about yourself?: 
Well, since I live in a small town, I have never actually entered a science fair or anything like that and I have always wanted too! Thank you so much 3M and Discovery for giving me the opportunity!!
