My name is Meadhbh Quigg and I am 14. Over the school year of 2012-2013 I was home-schooled as I traveled with my family all over the world. As I returned home I was informed by my new teacher that we were not allowed gum in class. I then wanted to find a way to test and prove that gum would be okay to have in class. Leading to my project I tested various people in various grades and found that chewing gum did, in fact, improve test scores. Later on I may have a larger variation of tests for those who chew and do not chew gum. Lastly a word to the wise for those trying a science fair project is to keep your data organized.
