My name is Robert Barrett and I am a grade ten French immersion student at Riverview High School in Sydney, Nova Scotia. I am a member of the school cross country running team. I am also a member of a local soccer team. I love down hill skiing. I am a member of the Sydney School of Kickboxing and that is where my idea for my science fair project came from. I also have an interest in outdoors and wilderness survival. Each summer I volunteer at the Fortress of Louisbourg and I have a keen interest in history and archeology. I plan to study science and find a career that will let me tie my interests in science and archeological history. Awards I have received for my science project include at regional level:the NSERC Award, the Engineers Nova Scotia Award, the Gold Medal for my division and the Best in Fair award. I was awarded first place in my division at my school. I have been invited to speak to a local technology organization about my project. I am involved in a local youth movement and I also participated in a provincial student association conference that promotes leadership.
