Hi my name is Carley Horvath. I am doing my project on “The Impact of a Distracting Environment on Memory”. I am 13 years old and go to Good Shepherd School in Thamesville. I play on the Cross Country team, Volleyball team, Basketball team, Badminton team and Track and Field Team. I also play acoustic guitar with an individual teacher. I even take horseback riding lessons, with a group of people that are in the same level as me. In my community I try to volunteer, for example at TJ stables I have help out with the horse. I am planning to go to the Pines High School in Chatham. They have wonderful sports programs there that I can be apart of. I have been at the Pines many times, one for Chatham Kent Regional Science Fair (CKRSF). At the CKRSF I got best in the show. I was happy because I have achieved a great goal. I am really excited to go to Ottawa for Canada Wide to tell people about my project. For my career planes, I would like to become a Nurse. I think my experience to Ottawa for Canada Wide will help me with my dream.

The Impact of a Distracting Environment on Memory
Division:Life Sciences / None
City:Chatham, ON
School:Good Shepherd C.S.
Abstract:Over the past few years modern life has gotten busier for example more students are on sports teams and end up doing there homework in the car, and often on the bus. These all become distractions and the classroom is also full of many different types of distractions. Do these environments interfere with the student’s short-term memory?
