Meet Jamie. She was inspired by Socktober to make her science project about helping the homeless!
Her project was all about determining which socks dried the fastest. She found that people who are homeless could avoid feet infections and more with socks that dry overnight or, even better, repel water. Her findings discovered that looser weave socks dried quicker, but sweat-wicking socks absorbed nearly a third less water and could dry completely in a shorter time.
