My given name is Elijah Linklater, I am from Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation or Nelson House. I am finishing my highschool grades and am going to continue my studies either in college or university. Science is very interesting to me and I am fascinated with science related topics. The enviroment is what I really wanted to work with because there are ways to take care of it this project is one. My project is something I really liked working on. I have accepted awards from my school in most of my classes. My hobby is learning, I learn all day. I have one living parent for I have been raised by my grandparents, they only speak Cree to me and always tell me school is important. Over the years I have attended different schools and have had many teachers along the way. It was here in Nelson House that I have participated in my first science fair, Winnipeg was my second and I am now going to participate on behalf of my school in Ontario. This has been a good experience for me and I am thankful for everyone who has taught and inspired me to excel in my studies.

Oil Spill Clean UP - The Natural Way
Division:Physical & Mathematical Sciences
Region:Manitoba First Nations
City:Nelson House , MB
School:Nisichawayasihk Neyo Ohtinwak Collegiate
Abstract:This project is about removing oil from water in oil spills. I used the idea in this project as an alternative, instead of known harmful methods which are praticed today. This is a much better way to avoid loss of aquatic life and reuse the oil. In this way we can still use the nonrenewable source of energy which is in high demand
