Megan - My name is Megan Downe and I'm sixteen years old. This is my second time attending CWSF and I'm very excited to be back. At school, I am a member of the student council as well as the travel club. I also dedicate a lot of my time to my 4-H club. In the future, I hope to pursue a career in medicine or another science. My project was inspired when my partner and I began to notice a sulfuric odor coming from the rivers in PEI. This odor came from the decomposition of Ulva lactuca, an over-growing species of seaweed that causes problems for the ecosystem. We learned that Ulva lactuca contains valuable components such as proteins and polyphenols. We tried different methods to extract these components. By finding value in Ulva lactuca there will now be a reason to remove it from waterways. My advice to students is to follow an idea you are passionate about. Your interest will push you to work harder and reward you at the same time.
Avery - My name is Avery Nicholson and I am 15 years old. I play curling competitively, and am a member of my school's triple A volleyball team. In addition to sports, I am a member of 4-H. The idea of our project came from seeing the effects of an abundance of sea lettuce in the rivers of PEI. We decided to find a use for this plant in order to benefit the environment, but also improve human prosperity. In the future, I aspire to become a psychiatrist. I would advise other students thinking of doing a project to find a topic you are interested in. If you are passionate about your project, then it will not seem like a bunch of work and will be more enjoyable to learn about.

Ulva lactuca: Subcritical Water and Supercritical CO2 Extractions
Région:4-H Canada
Ville:Hunter River, PE, New Glasgow, PE
École:Bluefield High School
Sommaire:The objective of this project is to study the macroalgae Ulva Lactuca and determine potential human uses for the plant in relation to proteins and polyphenolics. Harvesting this plant would result in more breathable rivers and benefit the economy as well.
