Some of the science projects entered for the Elementary Division Territorial Science Fair have special significance for the students.
Take Vaiana Aab of Siliaga Elementary School’s Stop Smoking project for example.
Her aim was to illustrate the cost of her father’s smoking.
She hypothesized that his habit cost $10,000 for 15 years but the actual cost was double that.
Vaiana said she wanted to show her Dad how much he has spent on cigarettes with the hope that the price tag mayh make him reconsider his puffing habit.
