Derek - Derek is a Grade 12 student at Fort Richmond Collegiate who is passionate in STEM and innovation. From the smartphone garage door opener to his coral reef restoration system, he has won numerous national and provincial science awards; attending his third consecutive CWSF. When he isn’t working on his next invention, he's an avid lead programmer of Vorpix Studios, a software studio he co-created with 10+ members that has received over 20 thousand downloads and $3000+ of revenue across their apps and products since their creation in 2015. He is always looking for new ideas to turn into software. Alongside his science fair achievements, Derek is a dedicated leader in all areas of STEM. Currently he is co-leading his school’s High Altitude Balloon club, which recently received a $20,000 research grant from Samsung for building High Altitude Balloons that aims to provide internet to rural Manitoba communities. He is also heavily involved with the Foundation for Student Science and Technology promoting STEM to students across Manitoba.
Himanshu - My name is Himanshu Sharma, I am 16 years old and was born in India and currently going to school at Fort Richmond collegiate in Winnipeg, Manitoba. During my early childhood I was an average kid. This was changed when I saw a computer at a friend’s house. My uncle worked with computers so he was able to get me one, I was very excited to have a computer in our house and it was rare to have one. I was fascinated by it, and that computer was the reason I am passionate about technology to this day. Later on when I turned 10 my family moved to Canada. Here I started using the web to answer any questions I have ever had, I started to learn more about tech and how to develop it. I have previously developed software for school projects, helped a friend with android development and have worked with technology in previous science fairs. 5 years from now my goal is to become a developer.

ReefHub: A Novel Autonomous Coral Reef Conservation System
Region:Manitoba Schools Science Symposium
City:Winnipeg, MB
School:Fort Richmond Collegiate
Abstract:ReefHub is an coral-nursery system with various different sensors and devices that increase the growth rate and improves the health of corals with the use of multiple novel methods such as Bubble Stripping and Biorock-Electrolysis. With the use of computer vision algorithms, the ReefHub is also able to provide a monitoring platform for corals autonomously by sending data collected from the ReefHub to a web-application.
