Windward School: Lupus Project

Los Angeles, CA

In the spring of 2016 7thgrade students at the Windward Schoolin Los Angeles explored the Big Idea of non-infectious diseases and were challenged to measurably and sustainably advance, engineer, or positively impact the lives of those affected with non-infectious diseases in your community.

Elijah, Eli, and Jacob decided to explore the auto-immune disease Lupus and after a thorough investigation developed kits for people recently diagnosed with the disease. They secured funding, had the kits made and donated them to Lupus LA.
