My name is Yvonne Meulenbroek, and I live in Norman Wells, Northwest Territories. I enjoy a wide variety of sports, namely gymnastics, and track and field. I also swim as much as I can in the summer, while our pool is open. Scuba-diving, reading, and researching marine life are among my many hobbies; my academic interests include Science, Math, and Language Arts. I hope to become a marine biologist when I am older, and am interested in any courses that will help me reach that goal.

Parasitic Contamination
Division:Physical & Mathematical Sciences / None
City:Norman Wells, NT
School:Mackenzie Mountain School
Abstract:My project, Parasitic Contamination, teaches the public how to identify a tapeworm by using an identification key to compare it to observations made with a microscope (e.g.: number of segments, length, etc.) It also studies the tapeworm's lifestyle and its ability to be transferred to humans through the consumption of fish, such as Arctic Grayling, and other species which live in the North.
