Passion Project Update

  Our passion Project is on genetics and it's going surprisingly well.  We have made a lot of progress but there's still more to be done.  We have researched a bunch of genetic and physical tests and then we tested our whole G&T class.  That way we will be able to see what genetic traits our most common.  We also tested our families so we can see how many of these tests are genetics.   Our major achievement is just having collected all our data.  The only obstacle we've faced is determining what counts as completion of the test.  For example, some people have a more obvious hitch hikers thumb than others.  That makes deciding if its an actual hitch hikers thumb harder.  We still have a lot of work to do on our project.  The next major step we have to take is analyzing our data.  We have to determine how many of our traits are actually genetic and how many are just physical abilities.   The only coming obstacle I can anticipate is deciding what all our data means. After we analyze all our data we have to create a power point showing our findings and explaining what having each trait means.  Overall we've completed a fair amount of our project but there's still more to be done.
