I am twelve years old, enrolled in a grade eight French immersion program in Duncan J. Schoular, Smiths Falls Ontario. I enjoy math, science, and computers. I have participated in numerous learning activities like Space Camp, SEEDS at Queen University and the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada monthly meetings (where I have also been a presenter). This year, I won several awards at our local science fair, participated as a finalist in the Canadian Legion Public Speaking Contest, and won first place from the Ontario Society of Engineers for building a model bridge. I also enjoy a lot of non-academic activities such as Girl Guides, soccer, bowling, summer camp, hiking, swimming, and canoeing. My hobbies include coin collecting, building airplane models, and working on my website. I enjoy spending time learning about astronomy by using my telescope to study the night sky. I also have two paid summer jobs - I pick blueberries on a local farm and work as a soccer referee. I am looking forward to going to university and becoming an attorney either here in Canada or in the United States since I am a dual citizen. I truly enjoy learning new things!

Abstract:The purpose of this project is to recreate a carpenter ant colony using the Java computer programming language.
