My name is Monica Mahut. I'm in grade 11 at MM Robinson H.S. in Burlington, Ontario. My birthday is May 20th. Within my school, I participate in many extra-curricular activities such as the school Senior Reach for the Top team, the Eco club, the Jazz and Concert bands and the school Music Council. I participate in many extra-curricular activities outside of school such as taking lifesaving swimming courses, leadership courses, Polish Girl Scouting, piano lessons and Polish School classes. I have participated five times at the regional science fair and have won two silver medals and three gold medals. I was inspired to start this project when I noticed the difficulty people had travelling around the city core and I wanted to find a good solution. I used different ideas from the transportation sector - maglev trains, elevator systems and subway systems - and combined them to produce a new transportation system that can connect a city core to be accessible for everyone. Future investigations on this topic would include more applications for this system, to reach its full potential. I would advise other students to think outside of the box and never stop investigating what interests you.

Elevator to Everywhere
Region:Bay Area
City:Burlington, ON
School:M.M. Robinson H.S.
Abstract:The purpose of this project is to design an innovative elevator system that efficiently uses less vertical space in a building than traditional elevators and can effectively transport people between buildings. As a self-powered elevator, this system does not rely on hoisting cables which is why it is able to transport people or freight both vertically and horizontally within and between buildings.
