Naomi Shah (a Muslim American girl whose grandparents may have fled the 1979 Islamic revolution of Iran) in 2011 won an age 15-16 Google science fair prize for gathering statistics on how out of breath asthmatic patients were at various levels of indoor air pollutants, summarizing the results in a formula, and making inexpensive air filters. She advocates cleaning air ducts, installing hard floors instead of carpets, and passing laws to regulate pollutants not currently regulated. She is the 3rd girl in the video at

In 2014, several Muslim teenagers won prizes at a science fair in Virginia.
A brother and sister team probably compared the effectiveness of peppermint oil and orange peel oil to repel pavement ants.

3 boys received an honorable mention for baking a loaf of bread and summarizing what they read about the chemical reactions of baking.

 

2016 GOOGLE SCIENCE FAIR
Many Muslims, especially from Turkey, won awards at the 2016 Google Science Fair. One was a Muslim-American girl, Kashfia Rahman, who performed an experiment on stress mindset among teenagers at her school.
She created stressful situations for half of her test subjects but not for the control subjects. Then the next day she interviewed them to ask such questions as if they had trouble sleeping the previous night. Her hair and neck are covered by a Muslim scarf.
