CWSF 2008 - Ottawa, Ontario

Living in Toronto for 11 years, I was involved in dance, music and school. When we moved out to Summerland, BC in the summer of 2002, I got involved in everything at school, including science fair, which I hadn't heard of before moving here. My science fair projects, starting with the first, have been steadily progressing up the science fair levels, with a silver at the regionals in Gr. 8, to a gold at the same place this year (Gr. 11). This year, having played the violin for about 5 years helped with my project. Testing violins for different sound wave patterns helped me to consolidate my different goals for the future. I hope to get into mechanical engineering at UBCO when I graduate, then do both engineering and music at UBC in Vancouver the year after. I also hope to do some major traveling, especially in Europe and Asia. Dancing, playing violin, flute, trumpet, piano, and guitar, and doing science fair is keeping my life busy. I look forward to science fair every year, and hope go to the nationals next year for the last time before I graduate.

Fourier Analysis on Violin Tone
Division:International / None
Region:Central Okanagan
City:Summerland, BC
School:Summerland Secondary
Abstract:I did Fourier analysis on several different violins to see if the harmonic patterns betweens violins were unique to each one. None of the differences were statistically significant. However, using a weight and pulley system to almost entirely eliminate human error, I managed to reduce the standard deviation on one of the violins to a minimum.
