My name is Alec Krawciw and I am a Grade 11 student at Mount Douglas Secondary in Victoria, BC. I have been involved in science fair since Grade 6. I have done various projects relating to energy and engineering. I am also very involved in robotics through FIRST Tech Challenge. My team has qualified for the world championships for two tears in a row. Outside of science, I also play the piano and the viola and I play in a string quintet. I was inspired to do this project because of the recent flood of new discoveries related to graphene. I want to continue researching graphene and reduced graphene oxide to continue trying to make printed circuits. Some advice I would give those doing a project next year would be to keep experimenting with your project even if what you discover is not exactly what you set out to do.

Graphene: The Next Generation of Printed Circuits
Region:Vancouver Island
City:Victoria, BC
School:Mount Douglas Secondary
Abstract:Graphene was discovered in 2004 and has since been actively researched due to its strength and conductive properties. In this project, the conductive, and capacitive effects of this material are explored using a less expensive method of fabrication: graphene oxide laser reduction.
