Eddie - My name is Eddie Kim, and I'm a grade 11 student at Cameron Heights C.I. At school, I participate in a number of activities, such as the instrumental band and the debate team. I am also the founder of the science team and the secular atheist society. Outside of school, I enjoy practicing Tae Kwon Do, playing the flute, and playing video games with my friends. I also enjoying writing computer software and writing web applications. After I complete high school, I plan to attend university to study to become a scientist. I believe that science is our road to the future, and I intend to do everything I can to use science to help humankind.

Watching Evolution
Division:Earth & Environmental Sciences / None
City:New Dundee, ON, Kitchener, ON
School:Cameron Heights C.I.
Abstract:An original computer program was used to simulate the process of evolution by natural selection, and determine how environmental parameters affect the evolution of populations. The organisms chosen for the populations were mechanical pendulum-clocks, modeled as matrices of heritable data. The results supported the model of punctuated equilibrium, and also determined how changes in various environmental factors affected the evolution of populations.
