My name is Kayla, and I am a rising sophomore at Promise Academy 1 High School. My starter project is the voice changer and I picked it because I felt that when it actually work I could hear my success. The portable centrifuge was my intensive project and I chose it because I could use it for separating liquids which I thought was pretty cool. BlueStamp was an amazing experience for me, it allowed me to become a better engineer and person. The problem solving skills and independence I have gained were not only helpful at BlueStamp but in the real world. Because of BlueStamp I am now interested in engineering and everything it has to offer.

For my final milestone I have hot glued the pipette holders at a 40 degree angle to the motor hub ring so that the liquid in the pipette can spin to the bottom and separate I also added weights so that the can wouldn’t shake as much. I used salt water to test the centrifuge and it separated, it took like five minutes so I prepared on for my milestone and you can see the salt separated from the water at the bottom of the pipette.
