My name is Ethan Toumishey and I lived have in the town of St. Stephen, New Brunswick my whole life. There I have enjoyed participating in numerous activities and sports. At my school I have held the highest average in my class for the past six years. I also am part of the choir, drama club, Kids Help Phone Youth Ambassadors, math team, chess team, the french oratorical team and am junior president of my school's TADD group. I also enjoyed playing on my school’s varsity basketball, soccer, rugby and volleyball teams. Outside of the school I am working towards the gold level of the Duke of Edinburgh award programme, and I enjoy writing poetry, working with young kids through the Small Ball program, summer soccer program and the volunteering at my local library. Next year I plan attend the University of Ottawa on a National Millenium scholarship to take a bachelor of biomedical science.

Take a Slide down the Learning Curve
Division:International / None
City:St.Stephen, NB
School:St. Stephen High School
Abstract:In my project I examined how humans learn when considering opinions of rationality. The social learning of high students to the learning curve predicted by game theory when playing a game called "Guess 2/3 of the average". The experiment was designed to examine if the students became more sophisticated as they gained experience, and whether giving students feedback and incentives could accelerate their learning.
