I am a Grade 7 student at Grant Park High School in Winnipeg. I am taking Grade 5 piano and expect to write my RCM exam this fall. I also like playing badminton. I believe we live in a throw-away society where products are thrown away instead of being sold, repaired, or repurposed. To do my part for the environment, I used as many recycled parts as I could in my project.

Building a Low-Cost Semimicro Balance
Region:Winnipeg Schools
City:Wpg, MB
School:Grant Park High
Abstract:Analytical and micro balances are very expensive and thus beyond the reach of the average person. An analog galvanometer and a low-cost multimeter can be used to construct an analytical balance for under $100. Use of a precision multimeter can result in a semimicro balance with an estimated resolution of 2 micrograms.
