My name is Alyssa Borutski and I attend Madawaska Valley District High School in Barry`s Bay, Ontario. I am very involved within my school community and have participated in a number of varsity athletic teams, including, basketball, volleyball, soccer and badminton, too name a few. In the winter I am a ski instructor at the local ski hill, and in the summer I participate in a number of farmer`s markets, selling my hand-crafted jewlery. I am very interested in science and would like to persue a career in medicine.

Abstract:Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) is a highly piezoelectric material that is highly non-reactive and also a pure thermoplastic fluropolymer. Using this material and the concept of piezoelectricity, a method has been developed to harvest the mechanical energy from falling raindrops and convert it into usable electrical energy.
