This is my third Canada Wide Science Fair. I am a cross-country ski racer, and train year round. I also enjoy track and field and cross-country running. I play piano, and I am currently working on my grade 8 RCM. I also sing and perform musical theatre. I am very interested in international affairs, and I love to travel. Next year, I will be attending Queen's University in England, at the Canadian University International Study Centre.

Sanitary Sunshine: Put to the Test
Division:Life Sciences / Environmental Innovation
Region:Northern Saskatchewan
City:La Ronge, SK
School:Churchill Composite H.S.
Abstract:This project tests solar pasteurisation, the decontamination of water using solar energy. Pasteurisers were used to bring water to temperatures between 55°C and 70°C. Contaminated water was tested to find out how long temperatures must remain at 65°C, before water is decontaminated. After 30 minutes at 65°C water was significantly cleaner, but traces of bacteria remained.
