Hello! My name is Jaaziel Cooper and I am a rising sophomore at Delaware County Christian School. I have five little brothers, love participating in school musicals, and am absolutely fascinated by science.
When I was told that I was accepted into TRIP, I was exceedingly excited to have the opportunity to discover more about biology and the many aspects of science research. During this program, I have decided to observe how population density affects the behaviors and fertility of fruit flies. By depleting the area that the fruit flies have to live in, I have been able to create an atmosphere where I can observe the effects of denser populations. Although the process of conducting your own experiment can sometimes be stressful, when you produce your own results, it is something that you take a lot of pride in. Independently obtaining answers to the questions that you have is a very special experience that allows people to gain more passion and realize their full potential.
