Mitra - I am a 16 year old, grade 11 student at Agincourt Collegiate Institute in Toronto, Ontario. I have a strong aptitude for mathematics and science, as well as an innate ability to establish great team dynamic through communication and excellent work. I have been a volunteer with the Ontario Science Center youth council since September 2012. Together, we have organized public events that aimed to educate youth aged 14-19 about issues in science and technology. In April, I helped organize an event about the effects of gaming on teenagers. My other personal favorites include topics on space exploration and extreme science technology (mountains, deep water diving). Additionally, I consistently place within the top at school. My recent term’s cumulative average was 95%, and my averages for the last two years have been 94% (Grade 10) and 93% (Grade 9). I hold leadership positions in many extracurricular activities including the model United Nations (Chair) and school Science club (Club Executive). I believe great work in science comes from mutual respect combined with innovative ideas and collaboration from within teams, and I am excited and look forward to working with others within the Canada Wide Science Fair.
Matthew - I am a 16 year old student in the eleventh Grade at Agincourt Collegiate Institute. Throughout my school career I have demonstrated commitment, dedication and focus on achieving the highest performance in both academics and athletics. My academic achievements includes being recognized on the “Principal’s Scholars list”, a prestigious recognition of the highest performing students for each year, where I am consistently at the top of my class, having achieved the highest overall average in Grade 10. In addition, I regularly participate and achieve high standings in University sponsored math and science competitions and my passion for education extends to volunteering, where I have tutored students in math. Science, technology and math have been a long time passion for me which is reflected in my desire to pursue a degree in the engineering sciences. Beyond academics, I am an accomplished baseball player and competitive swimmer. I play triple A baseball for the North York Blues, and I played a key role for team Ontario in winning the National age group title in 2013. In swimming I have been recognized as an OFSAA swimmer, qualifying for multiple events for the provincial championship each year throughout high school.

The HMSD: A Novel Aid for the Visually Impaired
City:Toronto, ON
School:Agincourt C.I.
Abstract:Visual impairment affects over 225 million people in middle to low income nations. As a result, a cost-effective hand-mounted sonar device that alerts users to surrounding objects through haptic feedback and edge detection was developed. When tested with 14 volunteers, the haptic glove was proven to be the safest and most reliable method of detecting obstacles in the path of the user.
