What is your favorite subject in school?: 
It's a tie between History and Science. I like learning about all the different times in history we have come thorough; how different things are, and how the same they are. I like science because it's all around us, every day, and the experiments are fun.
What kind of extra-curricular activities or hobbies do you enjoy participating in?: 
I enjoy building with Legos. My brother and I sometimes make Lego animation movies for fun. I also like to play outside with my friends or listen to novels during my free time. I participate in gymnastics, Kempo Karate, and swimming. I'm also a member of the RI Children's Choir. My family and I like camping and visiting National Parks. I have over 30 Junior Ranger badges!
What career do you want to pursue and why?: 
I don't know because there's so many cool things to do. A career that I can be outside or in the woods would be great.
Why did you enter in the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge?: 
I was looking on the computer for a show I wanted to see on the Discovery Channel and saw these cool videos kids made. I ended up watching them all to learn about different science topics. At one point while watching, the thought just popped into my head, "Hey, I should make my own science video."
What do you enjoy most about science?: 
Science is everywhere! It's what keeps us on the planet. It's what we breath, what we can touch, hear and see. It's also everything beyond our planet, beyond what we know. Under the sea, inside the earth, in this computer! That's really amazing. My favorite thing to do is to go on science related field trips and see real science in action.
Anything else you'd like to tell us about yourself?: 
no
