Noah - Noah Bayless was released back into his natural learning habitat at the age of 7, and spent five years at home with an online school called EBUS. Noah got up promptly at ten each “morning” and thought about his daily plans over a cup of tea. Usually, these involved sine waves and their derivatives, Archimedes, Japanese, or creating computer games, often accompanied by his cat, Smokey. He took a free online MIT course, “Godel, Escher, Bach,” which covered a variety of his favourite subjects, including math and computing. Finally, a tangible school welcomed Noah for Grade 8 this year, and he has learned how to use a pencil. At Point Grey Mini, Noah has mastered the arts of getting up early, writing tests without tea, and opening a combination lock. He is finishing Math 11 and hopes one day to be fluent in French, Japanese and Java. Noah’s hobbies include fencing, piano, reading, and gnomes. His favourite colour is green or sometimes blue, but most people associate him with yellow. He loves blueberries and red peppers. He is a two-time gold winner at the Canada-Wide Virtual Science Fair but has not attended a “face-to-face” fair … until now.
Sam - My name is Sam Harrison. I live in Vancouver, BC, where I am a grade eight student at Point Grey Mini School. Science is one of my favourite classes. I think that science fairs are a wonderful idea and a good way to get people into science. I enjoy playing the guitar, sports, and biking.

Sommaire:Our purpose was to create a device that would help visually impaired people navigate safely, through the use of an ultrasonic range finder. The ultrasound range finder interfaces with a computer and sends signals to a vibration motor that the user wears on a glove. The device allows users to detect obstacles without physically touching them.
