Jazmine Cardenas’ mother has always believed that sleeping with your cellphone is bad for you.
Jazmine wasn’t convinced, so she conducted a thorough experiment for this year’s LISD Secondary Science Fair.
For her efforts, Cardenas won first place in the Biological, Medical, and Health Science Division and was named Grand Champion of the LISD Secondary Science Fair held recently at the Civic Center.
Cardenas, a sophomore at Nixon High School, will represent Nixon High School and Laredo ISD at the International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix, Arizona from May 8-13.
She will join more than 1,700 high school students from around the world who will display their independent research.
She will be accompanied by her teacher, Itzel Hinojosa.
While in Phoenix, Cardenas will showcase her individual science project entitled, “The Repercussions of Electromagnetic Fields on the Reproductive Capacity of Drosophila Melanogaster.”
Jazmine’s project focused on the electromagnetic radiation from cellphones that cause detrimental effects on whole organisms.
