New Mexico Supercomputing Challenge

Can one live without salt or sugar?

Team: 138

School: Shiprock High

Area of Science: Health Science

Proposal: Our team decided to do our project on salt and sugar. We want to know if a person a can survive without salt or sugar inside them. We will find our answer by researching facts on salt, sugar, and humans. We will ask different experts in research like nutritionists, athletic trainers, dietians, chefs, physcians, people that work at a dialysis center, and experts in pathology. We will use Windows XP Java to simulate how the body responds when sugar and salt intake levels deminish.
