My name is Mercedes Ward, I am 13 years old and in grade 8 at Matheson Island School. Matheson Island is located in the middle of Lake Winnipeg in Manitoba. Matheson Island is a small trapping and fishing community of approx. 80 people. In my spare time I enjoy playing hockey, reading and playing the fiddle. My inspiration for my project came from watching the trappers head out to their lines in stormy weather. I wanted to try and make it easier for the trappers, with the result of my project. In the future I hope to continue with my project and advance to bigger and better things. One day I wish that my innovative invention will be used worldwide. As advice to others, the best way to choose a project is to choose something that you're interested in.That way learning about it will be productive yet fun.

This is achieved through GPS and satelittle technology, in conjunction with "The Trap Watcher" App to be developed.
