Project Description

Why the student has chosen the field of genetics for the career. How being in the PLTW lab has helped further his interest in genetics and kept him current on what is going on the field. Also, a deep dive about why he is interested in genetics.

Content: The top 3 things I learned from this showcase were:

1)How to properly present
2) How to identify essential information
3) More knowledge on the history of CRISPR

Culture: This project relates or connects to my family, background, peers, community or my own personal interests in these ways:

Because my cousin has the gene for Huntington’s disease and is fearful of passing it down to potential offspring. I would like to be able to help people in similar situations.

Metacognition: In reflection, one thing that I would have done differently during my journey with this showcase is:

I learned that I need to procrastinate less, start working on things like showcase much earlier.

Social/Emotional: One thing I am most proud of by completing this showcase is:

That I was able to publicly present and speak a little bit about myself.
