I am fifteen years old, the eldest of five children, and am currently home schooled. In my spare time, I enjoy playing the piano, cycling, chess, and swimming. I was the gold medalist in Intermediate Physical and Mathematical Sciences at the Canada-Wide Science Fair, in Ottawa, 2008. I have always been keenly interested in science, especially the field of chemistry. My career plans involve research related to renewable energy and hydrogen.

Carbon Conquered by Sea, Salt, and Sun
Division:Physical & Mathematical Sciences
Region:Northwestern Ontario
City:Thunder Bay, ON
Abstract:The hypothesis of this experiment is that carbon dioxide could be extracted from the atmosphere through the spontaneous reaction with sodium hydroxide, generating sodium carbonate and water. The sodium hydroxide required for the reaction could be obtained by solar-powered electrolysis of sea water. The electrolysis would also produce hydrogen, which could provide electrical or thermal power, and chlorine, which could be used for industrial processes.
