My name is Mira Bhattacharya, and I am currently a Grade 10 Student at STLCH in Richmond hill, Ontario. I enjoy reading, music, and art, as well as researching ideas in STEM, and volunteering in my community. In the future, I hope to pursue a career in the medical field. My project is about creating natural, and eco-friendly methods to clean water.

An Eco-Friendly Method to Remove Oil and Other Contaminants Using Fruit Peels
City:Concord, ON
School:St. Theresa of Lisieux Catholic H.S.
Abstract:Many polymers act as super-absorbers – they absorb many times their weight in water and because of this, they are extremely useful in many environmental applications. The current methods of oil and contaminant removal from water are harmful to the environment. My project focuses on creating eco-friendly methods to re mediate this issue.
