Emily - My name is Emily Mah and I am in grade 11 at Widdifield Secondary School in North Bay, Ontario. My favourite sport is gymnastics, and I am in level 8. I have been competing in gymnastics since I was 7 years old. I have been fortunate enough to win second at provincial gymnastics and to qualify to provincials four years in a row. I train 18 hours a week, and this has helped me develop great time management skills. At school, my favourite subjects are math and science, so I would like to pursue these subjects at university. My science fair partner Jazlyn and I got our inspiration for our project after discovering how many places around the world are affected by heavy metal contaminated water. Our plans for further investigation include seeing if it is possible to remove the heavy metals from our biopolymer. A piece of advice I would like to give other students wanting to do a project would be to make sure you pick a project that will interest you a lot because you will be spending many hours working on it. I am very excited to attend the Canada-Wide Science Fair for the first time!
Jazlyn - My name is Jazlyn McGuinty, and I am a grade 11 student attending Widdifield Secondary School, North Bay, ON. I have a published research paper in the Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Nursing. I have also presented two poster presentations at the 2018 CMHO Annual Conference and Geneva Centre for Autism International Symposium, 2018. I enjoy volunteering at the North Bay Regional Health Centre Pharmacy, One Kids Place: Children’s Treatment Center, and Marina Point Retirement Home. Before moving to Canada, I participated in cleaning the shoreline while living in Jeju-do, South Korea. Currently, I play competitive badminton on a provincial team. My science fair partner Emily and I got our inspiration for the project when looking into the large number of water sources affected by heavy-metal water contamination around the world. To further this experiment, we plan to remove the heavy metals that have embedded onto the biopolymer. The best advice I would like to give to students would be to choose a topic that you are passionate about and which will have the greatest impact on humanity.

Bannin’ with Tannins: A Heavy Metal Extraction Process for Contaminated Water
Région:North Bay
Ville:North Bay, ON
École:Widdifield Secondary
Sommaire:Biopolymer was embedded with mechanically isolated tannins then used to extract sample heavy metals from contaminated water. The results were measured using the change in mass, change in clarity, change in concentration of metal in water, and the effects on radish seeding germination. Overall, it was found that using biopolymer was an eco-friendly way to remove heavy metals from water.
