Susie - My name is Susie Pan, and I am a grade 11 student at Centennial CVI. This is my first year doing science fair and I loved the whole experience. I am heavily involved in school and community, where I am part of Prefects, Mentors, OSAID, DECA, and Chemistry Club. For DECA, I won first in Ontario and Top 20 at Internationals. This year, I am one of the six Provincial Officers for DECA Ontario. I am also an executive on Guelph Youth Council (Director of Communications), greatly involved in any planning, promotion and execution of events. Furthermore, I am the Vice President of Finance for Junior Achievement, a program designed to enhance youth entrepreneurship. I have received a full scholarship for Shad Valley Laval 2009. Academically, I have won Top Student Award and Outstanding Proficiency both years. I speak fluent Mandarin, English, French and currently learning Japanese. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, playing piano (Grade 8 RCM) and flute (3 year band member), MSN and shopping. I love to meet new people and gain leadership skills. For university, I hope to do a double degree or something that combines my love for science and passion for business.
Hillary - My name is Hillary Dawkins, and I am a grade 11 student at Centennial CVI. My partner, Susie Pan, and I competed at the Waterloo-Wellington science fair and won a gold medal, best of senior engineering, and award of merit. We then competed at the Sanofi-Aventis biotalent challenge and won third place. Last year both of us worked on an ExploraVision project that received an honourable mention, placing in the top 10% in Canada. I also wrote the Michael C. Smith science contest last year and placed in the top 10% in Canada. My interests include science, English literature, art and art history, and French. Last year I received an outstanding proficiency award from my school for Science, English, and Art. Due to my many interests, I hope to possibly become a teacher in the future. In my spare time I like to read, write, paint, practice French, and volunteer at the Guelph Food Bank.

Extending the Operational Lifespan of Dye Sensitized Solar Cells
Division:Sciences de la santé / Innovation environnementale
Ville:Guelph, ON
École:Centennial Collegiate & Vocational Institute
Sommaire:Possible methods to prolong the operational lifespan of dye sensitized solar cells were investigated. Benzoic acid was used to inhibit bacterial growth on the natural plant dye, and sealing agents were used to prevent the evaporation of liquid electrolyte. Benzoic acid was found to have a positive effect on red cabbage dye, depending on several factors. All tested sealing agents proved to extend the lifespan.
