Kate MacMillan is a grade 9 student at KLO Middle School in Kelowna British Columbia. Kate is a member of the KLO choir. Kate competitively rock climbs, and she attended the National Bouldering competition this year. Some of Kate's hobbies are reading, drawing and piano. Kate got the inspiration for her project from attending the "Go Girl Engineering" day at UBCO. The concrete toboggan team's presentation was the inspiration for this project. In the future Kate is thinking about pursuing a career in engineering. Kate's advice to other students thinking about doing a project is to choose a topic, and partner wisely.
