Ian - Ian Cholmondeley I was born on June 24, 1993 in Kingston, Ontario. My favorite thing to do is play hockey (road and ice). I have been playing hockey in the community house league for the past 6 years. This led me to become a huge fan of the superb Toronto Maple Leafs, who have featured some of my idols, including the legendary Mats Sundin. My preferred position in hockey is left wing or centre. I have also enjoy playing on various house league soccer teams over the past 7 years. I have attended the regional science fair twice in the past three years. During these fairs, I received and Honorable Mention (in grade five), and the Queen’s Chemistry Award (in grade 7.) I have attended various schools over my lifetime including J.E. Horton and Lundy’s Lane, and most recently Vanier. Vanier is a French immersion program for grade 7’s and 8’s. I have also been accepted into the Pre International Baccalaureate program at KCVI. I am looking forward to attending the Canada Wide Science Fair, and expanding my comprehension of science and having a great time.
Jesse - Jesse Purvis I was born on September 22, 1993 in Kingston, Ontario. My hobbies include playing various sports such as soccer, basketball, hockey, and swimming. In soccer, I have played on many teams in the rep and house league level. I have actually been playing since I was 3. In fact, I was once the top scorer in a rep league, and twice the second highest. To briefly describe my basketball career, I have played on school basketball teams for the past 3 years. I have also played on rep teams for 2 years. Lastly, I have completed all 10 levels of swimming, and look forward to attempting to earn a Bronze Cross this summer. Some of my other hobbies include, playing piano, and exercising on a regular basis. I am now at a level 4-conservatory piano. I have also attended 3 schools during my lifetime, and also have been accepted to the Pre International Baccalaureate program. I am looking forward to attending the Canada Wide Science Fair, and expanding my comprehension of science.
