Hi, I’m Sophie Hoye Pacholek, currently a grade 7 student at Louis Riel School in Calgary. Ever since I was 9 I’ve wanted to work as an aeronautics engineer for NASA, and science fairs have been about expanding my learning in a variety of fields. In addition to science, I love classical and jazz music and burying my nose in a good book. I’m inspired by the natural world, and enjoy hiking in the summer and cross - country skiing in the winter. Science fairs have always been the highlight of my school year, and in the past I’ve won two mathematics awards and the top elementary award at the Calgary Youth Science Fair. I believe that it is important to engage in science, and I’m looking forward to my first Canada Wide Science Fair.

The Genius Genus: Aspen Adaptations
Région:Calgary Youth
Ville:Calgary, AB
École:Louis Riel Elementary Junior High School
Sommaire:This project investigated if genetically identical clonal groups of naturally occurring aspen trees grew in a spatial pattern. When no definable pattern was observed in two mapped areas, an attempt to determine genetic relationships was initiated. DNA was extracted from catkin buds, PCR analysis was performed, and the results showed that a subset of trees were not genetically related.
