Hello, my name is Rachel Watters I am 13 and in the 8th grade at Samuel Hearn secondary school. My friends say that I am outgoing and bubbly. I am in the Inuvik figure skating club and I am very happy with all the help and support I get from my coach and friends. I have been with the club for 3 years now and I have competed in 2 competitions while with the Inuvik figure skating club. I have won a grand total of 10 medals, 5 gold, 3 silver and 2 bronze. I am bilingual in French and English I have been in French immersion since kindergarten. My favorite subject in school is English as I love to read and I love to write stories. I also really like to play soccer and I like to swim.

Too Much Texting
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences
City:Inuvik, NT
School:Samuel Hearne Secondary School
Abstract:I chose this project because I wanted to test and prove that texting affects your memory and reaction rate. I found by two separate tests that texting does decrease you ability to recall information and slows your reaction time. My results show that texting affects boys and girls differently, however it still affects both by a significant amount.
