Local student heading to Taiwan Science Fair

Van Volkenburg will be presenting her project titled "Finding a Better Brain Booster" which compares the effects of different activities on students’ academic performance in reading and mathematics. She found that short periods of aerobic exercise improved performance in both subjects.
While in Taipei, Van Volkenburg will stay with a host family, and take part in cultural activities. 
The Taiwan International Science Fair runs from January 29 to February 5, 2013.  Van Volkenburg leaves January 27.
