Ashlee - The inspiration for my project came from a brainstorm myself and my partner did while trying to come up with an idea for our classroom science fair. My partner is very interested in Biology and I am very interested in Physics, our project comes from our combined interests along with the idea of the HANS device. As for future investigations this we would love to be able to test in a more accurate ways to see if in fact our results were correct in saying that our device does work. Advice: Be creative and choose something you have an interest in. Always take all the opportunities your given and work your hardest at them.
Jami - The inspiration for our project came from both my partner and I. While my interest lies heavily in the field of biology, my science fair partner loves the physics aspect of science. We also both love kids, and wanted to do something to help them. Together we mixed our fields of interest, and created our innovative device. For further investigations, we would be very interested in testing the project and device more thoroughly, if ever given the opportunity to do so, along with minimizing our sources of errors. It would be wonderful to work on this apparatus and make this a product that could actually help our targeted 'consumers'. Advice I would give other students thinking about doing a project would be to pick a topic that interests you! Science has such a variety of specialities, and there is something for everyone. If you pick something you will look forward to working on, and that gives you a challenge, it will make the world of a difference in your work, project, and opinion of the whole experience.

This innovation creates a custom car seat targeted for children with Epilepsy or seizure prone.
