Erika - I am Erika MacInnis and I am 14 years old. I live in Saint-Lazare, Quebec and I am a student in the Grade 8 Matrix program at Westwood Junior High School. During my spare time I enjoy reading, playing the piano, playing the alto sax, swimming and cross country running. I am part of the concert band and jazz band at my school. Also, I occasionally volunteer at the Hudson Youth Community Center. My career plans are to become either a pharmacist or an engineer. I was inspired to begin my project on wind turbines when I had a chance to see wind farms in the Netherlands. This proved to be a very interesting project choice and there are follow-ups I would like to do which relate to turbulence. My advice to any student beginning their science fair adventure is to not be afraid to ask questions! One of the most important things in science is to ask yourself "why?".
Olivia - I am Olivia Cardillo and I am 13 years old. I live in Saint-Lazare, Quebec and I am a student in the Grade 8 Matrix Program at Westwood Junior High School. I enjoy playing guitar, reading, touch football, spending time with family and friends and volunteering at the Hudson Youth Community Center. I wish to have a career in engineering or the medical field. I was inspired by the story my friend told me about her trip to the Netherlands and of the great wind farms, and decided to partner up and do a project on wind turbines. I would very much enjoy doing further investigations in this field regarding turbulence. My advice for a student interested in starting a science fair project is to do a project in something they are passionate about and to always try their best.
