Andrea - I am a tenth grade student from Yale Secondary in Abbotsford, B.C. My main interests other than science include music and crafts. I have an ARCT Performers as well as an ARCT Teachers diploma in piano, and I am currently in RCM grade 10 for violin. I have toured Scotland with my violin group in 2008. In school, my favorite subjects include psychology, math, and languages. I speak Cantonese as well as English, and have been learning Mandarin as well as Spanish. I love teaching and working with children, and also do clerical work at a child education centre. Some other favorite pastimes include drawing, origami, kirigami, guitar, harmonica, clarinet, saxophone, and other various instruments. One place I volunteer at is Canadian Blood Services. This stirred up some interest related to genetics for my project. I highly encourage other students thinking about doing a project as it is a great experience and learning opportunity. This year is my second CWSF and I hope there are more to come.
Shaylee - I'm a grade 10 student from Abbotsford, BC, involved in volunteer work at veterinary hospitals. My hobbies include reading, writing, art, and gaming. This will be my first time competing in the science fair at a national level, and I hope to be back next year. I have always been fascinated by animals and genetics, so our project was perfect for my fields of interest. I plan to become a veterinarian or theoretical physicist when I graduate.

TeloMice: The Effects of Telomere Enhancing Products on Mice
Region:Fraser Valley
City:Abbotsford, BC
School:Yale Secondary
Abstract:This project compared results of mice consuming telomere support product (Product B from Isagenix), with mice consuming regular diets. Telomeres are repetitive sequences of nitrogenous bases at the ends of chromosomes (in vertebrates, this sequence is TTAGGG), and contain every person’s unique DNA. Product B contains nutrients that stimulate the recessive telomerase enzyme which contains a RNA based template of the repetitive sequence in telomeres.
