My name is Daniel O’Reilly, I am a grade 9, Principals list student. I am looking forward to attending my third CWSF. I love music and play classical piano - grade 6 repertoire, acoustic and electric guitar, bass guitar and saxophone. I also play in the youth ministry music group at church and Jazz Band at school. In addition I also have completed the RCM theory. I also enjoy volleyball, basketball, running, soccer, downhill skiing, and hold an orange belt in judo. At the Central Interior Regional Science Fair my project won a gold medal, Best in Earth and Environment Sciences Category, the CANFOR Excellence in Forest Related Science, and the British Columbia Institute of Agrologists Award. This project was originally inspired by a story my grandfather told me. The best advice I can give to students that are thinking about doing a project is, “Just Do It" and the results could amaze you!” My career goal is to continue with sciences.

The Ants Go Marching None By None
Region:Central Interior British Columbia
City:Prince George, BC
School:College Heights Secondary
Abstract:Ants are amazing insects that benefit the environment. However, when ants invade the forest industry, agriculture industry, and personal human space, they can have a negative impact. The objective of this project was to determine if substances derived from natural resources could be used as an alternative to commercial pesticides in order to control ant populations.
