Charles - Hi! My name is Charles Wang, and I am a grade 11 student at Semiahmoo Secondary. I am also in the full IB program, so my daily hobbies include doing homework and cramming even more homework. In addition, I also enjoy bugging my partner, Spencer Zezulka, about working on our project. The inspiration for our project came from many sources. This includes an article by the University of Berkeley and also a video about Elon Musk's plan to colonize Mars. After CWSF, we plan to conduct more specific studies, and also improve our system. Because our current design is just a prototype, there is definitely a lot of room to improve. As for my long term goals, I wish to become more involved in the medical field. The specific field, however, is still undecided. To any students wishing to participate in science fairs, just try and have fun! The fantastic people and projects you will be exposed to make the entire endeavor absolutely worth it, even if you do not achieve what you originally set out for. Best of luck in your future projects!
Spencer - Hi there! My name is Spencer. I'm currently in Grade 11 at Elgin Park Secondary, in Surrey, British Columbia. I love science (obviously), and I hope to major in physics or biomedical engineering after I (hopefully :3) graduate. In my spare time, I like to look at memes and play piano. In fact, I got the inspiration for my project during the latter, as most of my ideas do. I find piano very peaceful, a place where I can meditate and concentrate, and a place that is free from the oppressive shackles of internet-induced procrastination. For anyone planning to do a project, I suggest he or she does something he or she is passionate about; the more passion is in the project, the better it will be. Both of my projects so far were very focused on the environment, something I care about very much.

Solar-Powered Production of Clean Fuel by the Fermentation of C. acetobutylicum
Region:South Fraser
City:Surrey, BC
School:Semiahmoo Secondary, Elgin Park Secondary
Abstract:The need for a source of clean energy is a pervasive one. Our project seeks to do so through the bio-systemic manipulation of a photosynthetic biomass source and a metabolizing agent to produce carbon-neutral fuel. Possible applications of this project, especially because of its highly-scaleable nature include the cleaning of the atmosphere by sequestration of carbon dioxide, or the production of return fuel for Mars.
