My name is Daniel O’Reilly, I am a grade 10, Principal's list student. This will be my fourth time attending CWSF. At the Central Interior Regional Science Fair my project won a gold medal, Judges Choice Award, Best in Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Sciences, UNBC Mathematical Award and Best in Exhibition Award. At school I actively participate in Leadership, Rotary Interact and volunteer at a Seniors Nursing Home. I love music and play the acoustic and electric guitar, bass and piano. I also play in the youth music ministry group at church and Jazz Band at school. In addition I also have completed the RCM Theory courses. I enjoy travelling and hope to see the world one day, but for now I am very excited to see another part of Canada. In addition I am also looking forward to meeting other students and learning about their research. This project was inspired by a combination of my own curiosity and a story my grandfather told one day. The best advice I can give to students that are thinking about doing a project is, “Just Do It" and the results could amaze you!” My career goal is to continue with sciences.
