Audrey - Audrey is a girl who is absolutely passionate about science and learning in general. She goes to Summit middle school in Coquitlam and she loves to study about science, play sports such as badminton, volleyball, and swimming. She has received numerous awards in elementary school and she also received BC nature award and a gold medal at her first ever science fair, which was held this year. Her interests are focused on school activities because Audrey loves to go to school. She has volunteered several times at school, and outside school such as at church. Audrey is dreaming to be a teacher when she grows up so she could share her knowledge to students. Before Audrey chose a project, she had a great interest in aboriginal people's lives and she found out that first nations of Canada used evergreen trees to treat various infections. She got an inspiration from her interest and the project was very successful. For further investigations, she is considering of using many various types of bacterias and type of evergreen tree leaves. Audrey would strongly suggest to not use common topics or well-known topics for science fair for future science fair participants.

Antimicrobial Properties in Evergreen Tree Leaves
Region:Greater Vancouver
City:Coquitlam, BC, Port Moody, BC
School:Summit Middle School
Abstract:Evergreen trees are used mostly for their wood, but do they have medical properties? Inspired by Canadian indigenous people, this experiment was constructed to investigate if evergreen tree leaves have antimicrobial properties that can inhibit the growth of bacteria. This project leads to creating new, natural antibiotics that can kill bacteria, treat diseases as well as infections.
