Abigail does a great job of tracking her studies and being ahead of schedule while consistently achieving excellence in her work. Abigail and other scholars within their co-op researched multiple scientists, then selected one specific scientist to investigate in detail, and then created a mystery guessing box for their scientist. They used their newfound knowledge to guess which mystery box was for which scientist. This is just one example of her achievements, but she demonstrates this ARTIC value across her studies. Great work, Abigail!”
