I am Jacob Leong and I currently attend Aurora Academic Charter School in Edmonton, Alberta. My project is on concussions. I really wanted to do this subject because I enjoy playing sports, especially football. I watch the N.F.L often and I have aspirations of playing professional football. If my football career doesn't work out, I would like to study mechanical engineering. In regards to future research on my project, I would like to go deeper into studying C.T.E and Tau Protien as this research is valuable in saving peoples lives.
