Olivia - My name is Olivia Gardam. I am 12 years old. I was born in Toronto and have lived here my whole life. I attend the Toronto French School and am completely bilingual as my maternal family is French and my paternal family is English. One of my main interests is dance. I have been in dance competitions, participated in the youth day show on television and have won the choreography competition at my dance studio. I do charity work like donating cans to the harvest food bank. My favorite book series are the Hunger Games and reading is one of my most-liked activities. I am a vegetarian and am allergic to gluten as well. I like to write stories and I am told that I have a good sense of humor. I am interested in journalism and hope some day to be involved in it for my future career. My favorite subject in school is science and I am so honored to get the opportunity to participate in the Canada Wide Science Fair. My science partner and I are very excited to go to Prince Edward Island and learn more about science.

Geotropism and Red Kidney Beans
City:Toronto, ON
School:Toronto French School
Abstract:Our purpose was to study the effect of gravity on plants. A vertically-oriented, slow-moving wheel was used to simulate microgravity. Red kidney bean seedlings were placed in different orientations. Over a period of 9 days, plant growth and stem curvatures were measured and recorded with the aid of a time-lapse video. Our results found gravity to have a profound effect on plant growth.
