Sean - My name is Sean and I am in grade 7 and attending the Canada wide science fair for the first time with my twin brother William. My older twin brothers Ben and Duncan both competed at Canada Wide in the past and had a wonderful time. I enjoy biology and I am interested especially in penguins. I enjoy playing the piano and the flute. I play the flute in our school band. My favourite sports are downhill skiing and bike riding.

How Does Your Olla Grow?
Region:Greater Vancouver
City:vancouver, BC
School:, St George's School
Abstract:Ollas are hand made terra-cotta jugs buried underground to provide water for plant growth. This experiment designed, built and tested 5 geometric shapes of ollas comparing amounts and patterns of plant growth. Geometry influenced volume and patterns of growth with an inverted pyramid shape being the best. This is important since this design is not commonly used today, but could be adapted in the future.
