Alicia - I am 14 years old and this is my first time ever entering a science fair. My favourite thing to do is play hockey. I play on the Lady sting Bantam A. I also enjoy soccer, water skiing and Kung-Fu and have a brown belt. At school I was on the soccer team, hockey team, badmonton team, and track. I was also in science club and school newspaper.

I also helped pass the smoke free by law in sarnia by speaking at several city council meetings. I have won medals in hockey Kung-Fu, public speaking, chess, and other sports. After high school i hope to go to Western University. I would like to become a gym and science teacher. I also really enjoy spending time with my family.
Akruti - My name is Akruti Patel; I am a grade nine student at Northern Collegiate I. & V.S. in Sarnia, Ontario. I enjoy participating in various different science fairs, clubs, organizations and expanding my knowledge in science. Besides science, I participate in numerous other extra curricular activities such as swimming, soccer, piano, and dance. I also enjoy participating in public speaking contests and have won many awards at branch, zone and district levels. I take part in many clubs at school such as the Science Club, Multicultural Awareness Club and the School Newspaper Club. I also have a passion for music and have been playing the piano for 6 years. Reading, cooking and painting are some of my favourite hobbies. Science has had a great impact in my life and it will continue to be a part of my future. Being selected to go to CWSF is probably one of the most exciting educational event that I have ever experienced and I am eagerly looking forward to it.
