Jordan Lowe is Cosmos Student of the Week

Monday, April 21, 2014 - 5:32pm

Jordan Lowe was only 5 years old when he decided he wanted to become a Paleontologist.

His mother, Brooke Lowe tells me he stood out from the other kids.

"In his little pre-K video when they have to stand up and say what they're growing up to be, all the other ones are saying mom and doctors, and Jordan gets up and says I want to become a Paleontologist."

Now 10-years-old, Jordan loves Math, Science and History.

He tells me the movie Jurassic Park and trips to museums are what sparked his interest in dinosaurs and Paleontology.

"I've always been interested in the way fossils grow or form over time and how they change from the actual bone to rock."

Jordan says it's important to him to learn what life was like when dinosaurs roamed the Earth because it teaches people about their ancestry.

Jordan's hopes for scientific growth are far reaching.

"I think in the future we could actually extract DNA from Dino-mummies and we could actually create a dinosaur."

Already having his mind set on which college to attend, he says he also dreams of going to Utah or Argentina to find some fossils.

"I'm hoping to find some Iguanodon fossils, some T. Rex fossils, and some Brachiosaurus fossils."

With his excellent focus and determination, his mom has no doubt he'll succeed 

"He studies until his little heart gives out. He always tries to do his best at everything."

And his I-LEAP scores--100 percent in Science and Reading, countless medals, and certificates are all evidence of that!

You go Jordan Lowe!
