when i was in third year, we made something like photuris pennsylvanicus (firefly) for the detection of colon cancer. we reached the regional level of INTEL science fair naman.
then my classmates in third year hs made something like: janitor fish skin transformed into leather. they were successful and even featured on studio 23 a couple of times. they even have the janitor fish leather patented. they also reached the regional level, i think.
and three of my schoolmates won the INTEL international level (and went to the states!) by using sine waves to attract freshwater fishes. but they only won 3rd place. sabi kasi ng judge, pwede daw ma-abuse yung paggamit ng sine waves at magiging cause ng disbalance sa ecosystem. the research is entitled: NEMO: it's a sine. that was way back in 2005.
and my classmate in 4th year hs, along with him groupmates used agar-agar as their subject and won third place in a national level science fair this 2006 in ilocos.
naaalala ko pa. we used to go to UP Manila, Diliman and Los Banos and DOST just to get consultants! haha.
