Favorite Science Experiment: For my high school AP Physics science fair, I did an experiment where I investigated the effect that torsion (twisting) waves play on a bowed string instrument. I took a bass string, attached copper coils with epoxy, and positioned it in within an electromagnetic field in such a way that when the string was bowed, the torsion waves caused the coils to move and exhibit flux. Although I learned that epoxy is not necessarily my friend, I had a blast combining science and my musical side.
