There's a few issues:

  • when calling "toLowerCase", the name must be followed by parentheses "()"
  • a second loop isn't needed, but you can assign "data" to the indexed student
  • "students" is the entire array, the properties should be accessed on "data" instead
  • the individual property names should be shown instead of "Name" for each one
  • the "print" call needs to be inside the conditional block
      if (search === students[i].name.toLowerCase()) {
        var data = students[i];
        html += "<h2>Name: " + data.name + "</h2>";
        html += "<p>Track: " + data.track + "</p>";
        html += "<p>Achievments: " + data.achievments + "</p>";
        html += "<p>Points: " + data.points + "</p>";

Steven. You, sir, are one awesome brother. Thank you.
