Significant School Project: For my English STEM 12 project I worked with Dominique Pittman-Kidd and Reiden Chea to create C16-SiO2. C16-SiO2 is a polyethylene like plastic that we developed. We tested this plastics biodegradation and the results supported our hypothesis that our plastics biodegradation rate was faster than that of standard high density polyethylene. We were able to do all this with the help of our mentor Christine Luscombe from the UW. In addition, Sophomore year I completed a project where I compared the genome of the fruit fly and humans. I did this by completing a DNA extraction from a fruit fly and myself at Shoreline CC. Then I used a computer program to analyze the differences and similarities. The goal of this project was to show how similar model organisms really were to humans in order to explain why we use model organisms for testing.
