I have lived on a farm in rural Alberta for my whole life and attended school in the small town of Olds. I enjoy all kinds of sports; some that I actively participate in are climbing, soccer, fencing, football, futsal, hiking, snowboarding, and paragliding. I love to travel, in the past I have visited the U.K., Mexico and Cuba. In addition, in the past year I have been on school trips to Quebec and Vancouver Island. I am a member of Lost Leaders, a student-run organization which raises funds to send relief to third world nations. I also enjoy playing the piano. When I finish high school I would like to go on to post-secondary education studying science, perhaps medicine.

Green Hydrogen
Division:Biotechnology / None
Region:Central Alberta
City:Olds, AB
School:Olds Junior Senior High School
Abstract:The project was experimenting with a new biological method of producing hydrogen. I took soil samples and heat shocked them inactivating the hydrogen-consuming bacteria, while leaving the spore-forming hydrogen-producing bacteria alive. I then seal the sample in a reactor, and added water (to create necessary anaerobic environment), and sucrose (as a food source). The bacteria then converted the sugar to hydrogen and acids.
