I am Meghan Folnović. I am currently attending grade ten at Thom Collegiate in Regina, Saskatchewan. I like to play sports and hang out with friends. I enjoy playing soccer all year as well as volleyball, badminton, rugby and cycling. I play trombone and baritone in my school bands; in which I have won Most Valuable Jazz Band Member, two $50 scholarships and have travelled all over Alberta and Saskatchewan. I have also been involved with four province wide bands in grade seven through to this year. I am enrolled in the Pre-IB program at Thom Collegiate and spend most of my free time doing school work. In the future I would like to go to university, move out of Canada and work a high paying and enjoyable job. I would also like to fit in travelling the world and having a family. I have high expectations for my life and getting involved with Canada wide science fairs and province wide bands is getting me closer to that dream.

What is the Diameter of the Earth's Core?
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences / None
City:Regina, SK
School:Thom Collegiate
Abstract:By using seismic waves, I attempted to estimate the diameter for the earth’s core. With collected data of 10 different earthquakes, the time-travel curve of the P-waves, S-waves and L-waves were calculated. After figuring out the highest degree S-waves would occur on seismograms and inserting the degree into a formula, the diameter of 7540 km was calculated.
