Hi, my name is Israel Millar and I am a late French Immersion student in grade 8 at Stanley Humphries Secondary School. I moved to Castlegar, BC two years ago from a small town in Northern BC, Mackenzie. After graduating I plan on going to either UBC or McGill University to study neuroscience. Besides working on my science fair projects I ski, play piano, soccer, dance and am part of a volunteer group called Interact. In my spare time I love to hang out with my friends and travel. I have traveled to many places in the world but my favourite was Indonesia. I have been doing science fairs for 4 years and this is my second CWSF.
