Young scientists head to national fair

Budding scientists Nancy Li and Holly Hadley of Seaquam Secondary are Toronto-bound.

The pair’s science project, called Remember That?, was one of just eight chosen at the South Fraser Regional Science Fair to advance to the Canada Wide Science Fair in Ontario in May.

The 5th annual South Fraser Regional Science Fair took place April 7-8 at Kwantlen Polytechnic University and involved Grades 7 to 12 public and independent school students from Delta, Surrey and White Rock.

Eighty-four projects were submitted by 120 students from 40 schools. Gold medal winners also included:

• Go Green with R.E.D. (Rain Energy Device), by Tyler Tardi, Sunrise Ridge Elementary

• Electronic Pollution, by Lauren Laturnus, Devon Gardens Elementary;

• Hybrid House: Building Energy Efficiency by Working With Nature, by Shakti Ramkumar, Kwantlen Park Secondary;

• The Nature of Complexity: Cellular Automata and their Relation to Physical and Mathematical Concepts, by Lloyd James, Semiahmoo Secondary;

• Alzheimer/Dementia Assistant Technology, by Sarah Gordon, Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary;

• The First Advantage, by David Shorey, Kwantlen Park Secondary;

• Computer-Aided Telepathic Communications, by Nicholas Johnston, Semiahmoo Secondary.

The Canada Wide Science Fair takes place May 14-21. (Johnston previously won a coveted place on Team Canada to compete in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles, California from May 8-13, so won’t be able to attend the national fair.)
