My name is Nathan Benson and I am a grade 12 student from Hazlet, Saskatchewan. I am an executive member of my school’s SRC. I am involved in many extracurricular activities including: Volleyball, long distance running, curling, and Judo. My science fair project was initially inspired by my interests in both mechanical engineering and the natural sciences. In the future I would like to improve upon the design of my project and will hopefully have the ability to revisit this experementa. I have found my involvement in the science fair process to be very rewarding. I would recommend to anyone who is interested in entering the science fair, to work hard in making a unique and interesting project, but also to take the time to enjoy the process of scientific exploration and discovery.

Long Term Effects of Hyper Gravity on Plant Growth
Region:Saskatchewan Chinook
City:Hazlet, SK
School:Hazlet School
Abstract:My project is a study of the long term growth and development of a variety of plants, when exposed to added gravitational force. This added force is achieved through the use of a homemade centrifuge. My project’s purpose is to determine whether or not it would be possible to establish a food source for any colonization attempt to planets with a greater mass than Earth.
