Favorite school science project: "I grew up in a home where music, spanning all decades and genres, was always on. In elementary school I heard music could affect the growth of plants, and so I wanted to test the theory. While I did not understand the mechanisms behind it at the time, I was excited to see how classical music resulted in more lush growth, compared to the control plants with no music."
