Kavli Video Contest Top 10 Finalist--Nicholas LaJoie

Entry: Why is Science Cool? Science Experiments

What is your age?
I am 14 years old.

Where do you go to school? I go to the Van Buren District Secondary School (VBDSS) Maine

What do you plan to study in college? Something involving either science, technology, engineering, or film, I'm not sure yet.

What is your favorite subject? I enjoy most subjects, but my favorite is Science!

What inspired you to make this cool video? My 9th grade science teacher informed me of this contest because she knew I was interested in this sort of thing. I just thought it would be really fun to explain why science is cool (and maybe encourage others to think it's cool too).

What are your interests or hobbies? I am into sports, computers, LEGOs, solving the Rubik's Cube, science, building LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Robots, playing the drums, reading, and making videos.

What inspires you about science? Science helps explain the world around us (and outside it!) and I just find it fascinating how all these things work and allow us to do all kinds of things! Also, science can be really fun (especially science experiments).

Anything else you want to tell us about yourself? I was actually one of the Top Ten Finalists in the 2009 Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge!
