  • The Attaction of Repulsion
    Thompson�s Problem is the problem of distributing N identical point charges on the surface of a sphere so that total Coulomb electric energy is minimized. In Java, an original program was written to find solutions to Thompson�s Problem and a number of novel methods were used to analyze these solutions

  • Hormonal Insecticides
    The effects of the non-steroidal ecdysone agonist, RH-5849, on the development of insect larvae and the expression of ecdysone receptor (EcR) protein were investigated in Drosophila melanogaster. RH-5849 resulted in the apparent up-regulation of the EcR protein coincident with a significant death rate of larvae.

  • Einstein vs Water Flea
    The Perimeter Institute in " The (De)mystifying of Einstein's Speed of Light Postulate" uses the analogy of waves on a pond. This project extends this analogy to the other postulates of Special Relativity. Experimental results were in agreement. A quantum ether model is proposed which does not violate Special Relativity.

  • Chem 13 Award.
  • Chlorine and Hair
    I investigated the effect of chlorine in the water on my hair. I used chlorine concentrations at levels used in pools and spas. The changes in hair condition were observed by naked eye and under microscope. Chlorine concentration variations had the main effect on the hair.

  • Butterflies and Knees
    The butterfly movement of a goalie can cause knee injuries. Tests discovered the effects of torque, force, and overextension on the knee. It was found that torque and force were likely to cause injuries but overextension of the knee was less likely. Ways to prevent the injuries were developed.

    Canada-Wide Science Fair Awards
    Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals are assigned to the top projects in each division and category. Medal awards are based on marks assigned by the judges therefore there are times when not all medals are awarded.

    There are many other awards at the CWSF which vary yearly. Up to date information is available from YSF Canada
    In each of the three age Categories in each of the six Divisions, the following general guide is used:
    1 Gold Medal $1500 + Certificate
    2 Silver Medals $700 + Certificate
    3 Bronze Medals $300 + Certificate
    Variable Honourable Mention Certificate only
