Darrick - My name is Darrick Lee, and I'm currently in Grade 11 at Richmond High Secondary in BC. I've had an interest in the environment for a few years now, and have created a rap music video encouraging sustainability with a friend that has won a local video contest. I have attended the UNEP International Youth Conference on the Environment in South Korea in the summer of 2009. I have done presentations at local elementary schools and leadership conferences about sustainability. I really enjoy science, and hope that I can someday combine these two things I enjoy (the environment and sciences) into a career. I'm hoping to study mechanical and electrical engineering in post-secondary.
Owen - As a child I always enjoyed playing a variety of sports which carries through from my childhood to today. I also like music and play the piano at a grade 9 level. The sciences and mathematics are my favourite subjects and I value exercising physically equally with exercising mentally. In the past I have placed and in numerous piano competitions and also represented my city in a basketball team.

Power Generated from a Wind Turbine
Division:Physical & Mathematical Sciences
Region:Greater Vancouver
City:Richmond, BC
School:Richmond Secondary
Abstract:The power generation of a wind turbine is given as a simple cubic function however, physics equations generally tend to oversimplify phenomenon. We tested how power generation was affected factors such as blade size, gear ratio, and wind velocity. Through data analysis we were saw consistent trends in numerous graphs, and tried to explain the deviation from the original equation by creating our own.
