My name is Adrienne Duimering. I am fourteen years old and attending Grade 9 at St. Margaret's School in Victoria, B.C. My favourite subjects are math and science, and I love to learn new things. I have been playing the piano for nine years. I live with my parents and older sister, Adele, on the border of John Dean Provincial Park. I would love to have a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever--that would be my ideal pet! My favourite TV show is Grey's Anatomy, and I would like to enter the medical field myself. I love skiing with my family on Vancouver Island. I enjoy visiting Strathcona Provincial Park and partaking in outdoor activities. I have competed in the Vancouver Island Regional Science Fair for the past five years, and this is my first trip to the Canada Wide. I am very excited about this opportunity!

Abstract:My experiment is designed to find out if baking soda and ammonium sulfate are effective alternatives to the expensive commercial fire retardants and the best concentration to use for different materials. My results were that the more concentrated the compound was, the better it worked. The baking soda and ammonium sulfate were both effective fire retardants and affected the flammability of the various materials differently.
