Biography
Hello! My name is Aidan Mundle. I am an 11th-grade student at Albert College, in Belleville Ontario. I play three instruments and love to be outdoors. I participate in many outdoor education programs and have numerous canoeing and kayaking certifications, as well as wilderness first aid qualifications. I came up with the idea for this project at an entrepreneurial think tank called SHAD, where I was given the challenge of finding a way to reduce Canadian's carbon footprint. I did some research and found the statistics that provided the drive for this project. I plan to market this innovation in the future and to bring it to greater heights using the advice that I collect at this fair. I would advise other students to stick with their project even if it looks like it might fail. They should change a few things, and try again.
