Danielle - As a 15 year old high school student, my life is pretty busy- from being involved with clubs around the school; Free the Children, Band, and Leadership to extra-curricular; Tae Kwon Do and Piano. I enjoy doing many things in my spare time such as running, biking, painting, playing piano and just hanging out with the people I love most. As for achievements, I've won a few things here and there... but what I'm most proud of is receiving my second degree black belt-- but getting to go to the Canada Wide Science Fair comes extremely close. For the future, I hope to travel, see the world, and try to make a difference through positive change. University is definitely in my planning, but to where, and for what are still questionable. Overall, I'm a pretty well-rounded person, who searches for opportunities to meet new people and learn more about the myself and the world around me.
Jasmine - My name is Jasmine Kwok and I am in tenth grade. I go to Francis Libermann Catholic Secondary School in Ontario. In school, I am involved in many leadership groups, including Camp Olympia, Libermann Leaders and a social activist group. In the past I have also joined my school's track and field, badminton and cross country team. In my spare time I like to play the piano and to run. When I grow up I hope to pursue innovations towards helping the environment, or to become a nutritionist.

Developing & Degrading Starch Based Plastics
Division:Health Sciences
City:Toronto, ON
School:Francis Libermann C.S.S.
Abstract:This project explored types of starches (potato, cassava and corn) as a component of degradable plastic. These plastics were made with the plasticizer propan-1,2,3,-triol, and were degraded in a controlled lab incubator. Determined by their weight losses after degradation, the potato starch-based was the strongest, although all the starch-based samples degraded effectively.
