I am thirteen years old, enrolled in grade 9 at SFDCI, Smiths Falls Ontario. I enjoy math, science, and computers. I have participated in numerous learning activities like Space Camp, SEEDS at Queens University and the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada monthly meetings (where I have also been a presenter). I am also part of the local air cadet squadron and I am hoping to recieve my power flight liscence. This year, I won several awards at our local science fair including best of fair and participated as a finalist in the Canadian Legion Public Speaking Contest. 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 project is a computerized simulation of the relationship between a parent and its baby. Based on interviews and research, I have created an object oriented program using Java which simulates several aspects of a baby's early physical and emotional environment as a first step to creating a complete model of the infant/parent interaction.
