Favorite Science Project: A few classmates and I had to try and recreate an experiment where we used sound waves to make a bubble form and pop repeatedly, this creates light and is known as sonoluminescence. Easily the hardest experiment I’ve ever done, but the most fascinating! And we were one of only a few groups to replicate the results!
