Help 8th graders Julia Robinson and Sam Widschwenter fight Alzheimer's!  Here is our link to the website for our Titan IDU project! Sam and I made this website that was also connected to what we have been doing with Change the World. It describes the Alzheimer's disease, and what we are planning to do to make a change. You are also able to donate money towards research for Alzheimer's, and it would make our day if you donated. Click here
