My name is Jacob Harvey, and I'm a grade 12 student from Grant Park High School in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I have been mentored at the University of Manitoba for the past 4 years and have worked in their Biosystems Engineering Lab on projects concerning the development of biodegradable plastics produced via biosynthesis by a variety of different microorganisms. I hope to continue this research into university, as it has been an eye-opening experience for me to work in a real lab. I would definitely recommend anyone with even the slightest interest in science to participate in local fairs and if possible, work under a mentorship program.

Sommaire:The abundance of plastic waste is one of the greatest environmental catastrophes the world is facing today. The objective of this project was to determine whether it is possible to, through the use of bacteria, convert plastic waste into a biodegradable, bio-compatible plastic. The discoveries made in this project propose a potential means for bio-remediation as well as for replacing conventional, petroleum-based plastics.
