ESPC 2009 - Winnipeg (Manitoba)

My name is Robin White, from Victoria, with the Vancouver Island group of Team British Columbia. I am in grade 8 at Gordon Head Middle School, and the VIRSF this year was my first regional science fair, so I am excited to be going to the CWSF!! I am passionate about the environment, which is why I chose to do this project. I also love sports; I was a competitive gymnast for 3 years, competing provincially to level 4 and winning 4th place all around at B.C. championships in 2008. I dance competitively with Karen Clark Dance Studio. I enjoy soccer, volleyball, track, and cross country. In addition, I like to read and draw, and am in the choir and solo group at my school, as well as the leadership program. Obviously I also love science, which is why I’m here!! Next year I will be attending Lambrick Park secondary, where I plan to continue my passion for science.

Warm and Fuzzy; no More Scuzzy: Effective Small Scale Motor Oil Spill Cleanup
Division:Sciences de la santé / Innovation environnementale
Région:Vancouver Island
Ville:Victoria, BC
École:Gordon Head Elementary
Sommaire:In part one of this project five readily available materials were used to study motor oil absorbency. Cotton and paper towel performed best. In part two of this project a homemade miniature skimmer containing either a cotton, newspaper or towel absorbency pad was used to test small outboard motor simulated oil spills in salt water and fresh water. Cotton proved to be highly successful.
