Banner Graphic
Nicholas enjoys playing baseball and tennis. He also likes camping, backpacking, boating, and other outdoor activities. He'd like to pursue a career as a doctor someday because, Nicholas says, "I enjoy helping other people."
Project Graphic
Inspired by his own desire for a cellular phone, Nicholas learned that electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation emitted by these phones might be harmful to cells. He decided to test how different levels of EMF radiation harm cells on test tubes full of algae.
Nicholas wrapped seven test tubes with coils of wire. He exposed these tubes to a magnetic field, producing levels of EMF radiation that ranged from 0 milligauss to 17,200 milligauss. He recorded the cells' appearances after cells were exposed to the radiation for one hour and two additional hours. Nicholas found that radiation levels of 1,000 milligauss and above damaged the cells.
