I am a fourteen year old student at École Secondaire Catholique Thériault in Timmins, Ontario. In the winter I like to spend my free time snowboarding and playing hockey, and in the summer I sail all day. I also love reading, drama, travelling and trying different foods. Some day I would like to be a programmer. I was inspired to do this project after learning that people all over the world drink water contaminated with arsenic, because they have no means of removing it. I decided that I would try to develop an accessible and easy method to remove it, and it worked! This is my second time going to Canada-Wide Science Fair, and I'm really excited.

Using Food Waste to Remove Arsenic from Water 2.0 – It’s All About Oranges
City:Timmins, ON
School:École secondaire Thériault
Abstract:Contamination of drinking water with arsenic is an important problem in several areas of the world, and many people can not afford to remove it. Last year I explored the possibility of removing arsenic from drinking water using food waste. This year I designed a household flirtation system which removes arsenic from water using dried orange peel.
