Last year marching with the band
I’m going to be a senior. It’s going to be my last year marching with the band so that will be fun. I’m also in the Math and Science Academy and so I have my research project, which is coming along so I’m excited to compete with that. Plus, I have just some of my favorite teachers this year, so I’m excited about that.
Do you want to tell me a little more about your research project?
I worked with Dr. Cooper, he’s a professor at ODU; I worked in his lab. It was a project on chemistry involving using silver nanoparticles to create special surfaces that basically make an instrument function better.
What do you play in the band?
I march tuba and I also play alto saxophone in concert band. I really love our band director, Mr. Parker. He’s just really good teaching us how to use our years and really think about how we’re doing music. And plus, it’s just so much fun being around 50 of your closest friends and working on a project.
