Biography
My name is John Fish, and I'm a 16-year-old student in grade 11 from Waterloo, Ontario. I'm hugely passionate about a lot of things, but primarily I'm passionate about science, programming, running, and trees. Right now I'm the #1 ranked U18 runner nationally in both the 800m and the 1500m distances. I have released a number of apps with commercial success on both the Google Play store and Blackberry World, with iOS apps coming soon. This is my second CWSF, my first being last year where I attended for my project GPS Footprint. I'm a huge environmental advocate, and my previous projects have shown that: GPS Footprint, Timber (an award winning hackathon social network that was based on meeting people at trees), and now my current project which looks at measuring the biomass of trees using computer vision. At my Regional Fair, I won Best in Division for Engineering, as well as a variety of scholarships to local universities.
