Manel - “I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward”- Thomas Alva Edison. Manel bases this quote on every aspect of her daily life in order to succeed. Ms. Manel Zeghal is presently in grade nine and attends Colonel By Secondary School in Ottawa. This is Manel’s third year attending the Regional Science Fair, and her second year going to the CWSF. At school, she continually maintains a 90+ average, currently enrolled in the pre-international baccalaureate (IB) program and an active member of several associations and clubs. She is a member of the World Tae-kwon-do Federation and working towards becoming a lifeguard. When she is not hard at work at her studies or doing sports, Manel is either reading, playing with her lovebirds, drawing, biking or spending time with her family and friends. When Manel grows up, she wishes to pursue a career in medicine. Some of her most notable achievements are her acceptance to the International Baccalaureate (IB) program, graduating as the top grade eight student from her previous middle school and her First Degree black belt. A relentless achiever, Manel is also able to bake five-minute brownie mix in less than three minutes.

Modelling Canadians' Lipid Profile Using Artificial Neural Networks
City:Ottawa, ON
School:Colonel By S.S.
Abstract:The artificial neural network predicted the lipid profile (high-density lipoprotein, low-density lipoprotein and triglycerides) with an average error lower than 3% and showed that age (especially women), excess weight, diets rich in animal protein and saturated fats influence negatively the lipid profile. Monounsaturated fats (MUFA) and polyunsaturated (PUFA) fats are the key to improve the lipid profile with a superior impact of MUFA over PUFA.
