My name is Yoyo Ding, and I am currently a grade 11 student at Crofton House School in Vancouver. I am not only a figure skater, a pianist, an artist, and a mathematician, but also a student of science. My project focuses on fog harvesting system, a topic that I found through natural phenomenon of water condensation and landed on because of its potential real-world application. Despite the lots of fascinating knowledge I have learnt through this project, going forward, I want to dig deeper in the topics related to water resource management and extend my research beyond a specific technique. Creativity is a main component of my project, and it is definitely the most valuable in terms of extending my vision beyond the boundary. If students are considering doing science projects in the future, creativity should also be taken into consideration.

Inmeshtigation: comparison of water vapour collection of 3 mesh sizes
Region:Greater Vancouver
City:Vancouver, BC
School:Crofton House
Abstract:Fog harvesting is a technique that collects water with large mesh structures in an environment with persistent fog. To investigate the relationship between mesh size and optimal water collection, this study tested three mesh sizes in a closed system that simulated a foggy environment. Surprisingly, the middle size was the most efficient, suggesting there is an ideal mesh size to optimize water collection.
