I am a student from Upper Canada College. I am very passionate about learning all sorts of types of knowledge. I chose this project because Canada is a country full of sunshine all year round. Protecting against UV rays is very important to everyone. So, choosing a suitable sunscreen is very beneficial to all individuals. This experiment directly helps people make their decisions. If I were to continue experimenting, I would take more trials. The more trials I have, the more accurate my results are. An advice that I would give to other students thinking about doing a project is that it is important to select a topic that is related to everyday life. This way, the project can act as a guidance for others to have a healthy lifestyle.
