I'm John Burns Duynisveld. I'm in grade 10 at Pugwash District High School, where my favorite subjects are math and science. This is my 3rd CWSF, and I am very much looking forward to CWSF 2015! In the winter, I curl and ski. In the summer, I golf and run. I enjoy music and video games year round. I have been a 4-H member for 7 years, taking a variety of projects, up to provincial level. After high school, I plan to study to be research scientist.

Abstract:The effect of lettuce genotype and lighting source was studied. Five genotypes of lettuce were planted under either LED or fluorescent lights. There were significant genotype by light source interactions noted in 25 day leaf counts and leaf size. There were significant colour differences in the leaves. There were interesting trends in chlorophyll levels. Lettuce genotypes perform differently under fluorescent and LED light sources.
