Cody Lee - At the age of 16, I am in grade 10 at Kelowna Secondary School in Kelowna, British Columbia. I take part in several extra-curricular activities such as hockey, rugby, tennis, volleyball, soccer, science clubs and more. In 2006, my hockey team won the provincial championships, and my rugby team won bronze at the B.C. Summer Games. Having attended the Canada-Wide Science Fair from 2005-2007, I hope to continue pursuing science projects in the future. Upon graduation, I plan to attend a Canadian university on a sports scholarship, pursuing a career in astronomy, with hopes of becoming an astronaut. I passionately believe in tenacity and determination...shoot for perfection, and you'll get something close.

Orbital Forcing: An Astrophysical Solution to the Puzzle of Climate Change
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences / Environmental Innovation
Region:Central Okanagan
City:Kelowna, BC
School:Kelowna Secondary
Abstract:This project studies the effects of orbital forcing on the Earth's climate through the analysis of astrophysical cycles. Based on extensive orbital research and analysis, we have formed a plausible theory relating variations in the Earth's orbit to long-term climatic change, particularly ice ages. In addition, an attempt is made to relate the solar cycle of sunspots to short-term climate change associated with global warming.
