What do “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns N’ Roses, Guatemalan cuisine, snowboarding, Baroque painting, and baking cookies have in common?

They were each the subject of a personal project created by a 10th grade student, which were showcased at the annual personal project celebration at Fridley High School on Wednesday, January 17. Families, friends and faculty crowded the high school’s media center and hallways to see the projects displaying the diverse interests and independent research skills of the more than 200 students that participated.
