Biographies
Claire - Claire Scrimini is a grade 9 student from Burnaby, BC. Actively involved in her community, she has started several fundraisers for various causes and she volunteers regularly. An athlete, she is a member of several sports teams and her interests include science, travelling and languages. She was recently awarded a bronze medal for her persuasive speech at a French public speaking competition. After reading a story about the dire need for clean drinking water in developing countries, Claire and her twin sister Vanessa began to look for solutions which led to their project. They were determined to find an innovative at home solution that would offer an efficient way of accessing safe drinking water. They concluded that the use of Moringa Oleifera as a coagulant in the flocculation process was the answer. They plan to continue this project with further testing to determine the most effective dosage of Moringa Oleifera to use in wastewater treatment. Her advice to other students considering doing a science project is “think like a proton and stay positive.” -Unknown
Vanessa - Vanessa Scrimini is a grade 9 student from Burnaby, BC. Her interests include travelling, learning new languages and meeting new people. As well, this soccer player is a keen science student, particularly in the field of biology. She entered her first science fair last year. Selected to present at the Greater Vancouver Regional Science Fair (GVRSF) in 2016, she was awarded a silver medal. This year, her project once again qualified for the GVRSF and this time, it was recognized with a gold medal.

Vanessa’s advice to students, “Science Fair is an amazing experience and the effort and time put into it is well worth it!”

Flocculation for the Population
Challenge:Environment
Category:Intermediate
Region:Greater Vancouver
City:Burnaby, BC
School:Burnaby North Secondary
Abstract:A billion people do not have easy access to clean drinking water. The purpose of this experiment is to determine which coagulant, a substance that helps particles clump together, can most effectively help with the removal of contaminants in raw water. The results of this experiment leads to a simple and inexpensive method of purifying water in any home around the world.
