Naomi Shah, winner of the 15-16 year old age group, had a project on air quality. Naomi comes off remarkably articulate as she describes multiple portions of her project...
Goal: "The goal of my project is to uniquely quantify the effect of environmental pollutants on the lung function as measured by the Peak Expiratory Flow (PEF) rate."
Future Research: "There is a saying amongst environmental professionals: 'The genetic make-up is like loading a gun. The environmental pollutants represent the trigger!'
"Triggers cause one death every 20 seconds! The project is my sincere hope to increase awareness amongst all stakeholders in order to eliminate the environmental 'triggers' that take these innocent lives."
