Inae and Travis participated in the Science Expo during 31st of August to 2nd September 2015. The title of their project was “ Salivary-Alpha –Amylase as an invasive biomarker”. They tested whether stress affects the concentration of the alpha-Amylase in your saliva.

Thoughts from Travis and Inae: “ We are extremely excited for what is to come, we are grateful to God for blessing us with the ability to produce such a project, and to El Shaddai Christian School for providing us with the laboratory and chemicals to perform the experiments.
