My name is Afridee Haque. I am 15 years old, and I always like to strive to achieve any challenge that comes upon me. This can for educational purposes, or for sports. My favourite thing to do is play soccer, which I like to be competitive in along with everything else I do. My favourite subject is science; I like biology and the study of genetics. So I want to be in the medical field when I grow up. I also find astronomy very intriguing. I've written the Waterloo University sponsored Gauss Math Contest a couple of times, both times coming in first place among the competitors I was against in my school. I'm a quiet kind of guy, and I like to observe why things are happening rather than "be the thing that's happening". My inspiration behind this project came from some of my older aged teachers that sometimes complained that they couldn't remember something because of their age. For further investigation, I want to be able to explain in more detail how memory is created and how it deteriorates as a person ages. For other students thing king about doing a project, I would highly recommend them to.

Your Age vs. your memory
Region:Lambton County
City:Sarnia, ON
School:Northern C.I. & V.S.
Abstract:My project is about how as a person ages, their memory becomes worse and worse- especially their short-term memory. It is true that a person's memory eventually deteriorates, but it's not as they may expect it too. It's not like if a person hits a certain age, their memory just collapses. It's a gradual declination. So I constructed a simple experiment to prove my theory.
