Banner Graphic
Jason enjoys designing new things and playing the French horn and mellophone. He'd like to become an engineer someday because he loves "taking things apart and putting them back together."
Project Graphic
While visiting his brother, an entomologist who specializes in mosquitoes, Jason saw some mosquito traps. His brother challenged him to improve on the existing traps or design a new and better one. Because mosquitoes are attracted to motion, Jason hypothesized that a mobile trap would catch more mosquitoes than the existing stationary ones.
Jason attached a standard mosquito trap to a toy train and allowed it to catch mosquitoes for two hours at dusk. He compared the number of mosquitoes in the mobile trap to those caught by a nearby stationary trap. He found that the mobile trap caught significantly more mosquitoes than the stationary one.
