I am currently a Grade 11 student at Glenlyon Norfolk School in Victoria, BC. I have been running an educational science YouTube Channel called “Sci-Files” ( for four years now and produce monthly science videos. I have also produced a children’s book set called “STEM Files” that contains five books that promote STEM Subjects and revolves around female STEM contributors. In the future I plan on pursuing pharmacology; this inspired my project as it was a way for me to explore a non-antibiotic treatment for a disease. I plan on continuing my project by testing more components of saliva alongside eugenol, as well as other similar compounds such as catechol. In my future career, I hope to study treatments for diseases such as nephrotic syndrome, a kidney disease which one of my brothers has. I also plan on continuing to promote STEM education and outreach through my videos. My advice for students thinking about Science Fair is to never doubt your ability to create an interesting project!

Oral Infections: Does lactoferrin inhibit the bactericidal action of eugenol?
Region:Vancouver Island
City:Victoria, BC
School:Glenlyon Norfolk School
Abstract:I tested the bactericidal action of eugenol on oral bacteria with and without the presence of lactoferrin. Through doing this I was able to determine if lactoferrin (a protein present in saliva) inhibits the effect of eugenol. Functional group changes in eugenol were also tested to determine which substituents were responsible for the bactericidal action.
