Biography
Wendy Fang is currently a grade 10 student attending school in Burnaby, BC. She has a strong passion in the areas of science and math, leading her to becoming an active member of her school’s math team, competing in various competitions and participating in multiple science events where she is able to share her ideas and learn from others. In addition, Wendy is leading a school club where problem solving, creativity, and communication coalesce to create helpful projects for the community. Overall, medical science in particular has always been the main area of her interest. Always curious about pioneering health improvements and breakthroughs, she stumbled upon the problem of allergy outbreaks. After further research, she discovered that more than one out of six Canadians suffer from allergies each year. Consequently, she wanted to find a way to help those people during allergy season. Her goal was to create a portable device that would be able to provide real-time pollen concentration reports to allergy-sufferers, so they would be able to navigate themselves to areas that are less contaminated by allergens. In the future she hopes to do more work in the field of medicine and become a doctor.

Abstract:The fear of allergy outbreaks and the feeling of not knowing which areas have high or low pollen concentration is the biggest concern for many during allergy season.
