My project is entitled Asbestos in Swift Creek. I got this topic idea from a local newspaper. Plans I have for further investigations would be to see if local agricultural land has been affected by the asbestos such as the soil. Science fair can be a journey of thought process and hard work yet I enjoy it because it allows me to be my very own scientist. Advice I would give to other students wanting to do a science fair project is to choose a field that you are interested in. If you choose to work with a partner, know that they are dedicated, hardworking , and someone you can manage your time with. Enjoy working on your project and manage your time well! I myself am a very involved student. I have clubs to attend every day of the week whether it’s Glee Club Leadership clubs and more. I am the president of our school’s leadership service club. I play sports such as basketball and volleyball, take vocal lessons and enjoy them. I try to keep myself busy while being balanced!
