Delta Science Students hit Toronto
Three Delta students recently competed in the country’s highest-level science fair. The 50th annual Canada Wide Science Fair invited 500 student finalists from coast-to-coast to present their regional winning projects at a week long fair in Toronto. Among the group, were Devon Garden Elementary’s Lauren Laturnus, as well as Holly Hadley and Nancy Li from Seaquam Secondary.
Laturnus, a grade seven student, examined how modern electronic devices affect bean plants. She determined that between a cellphone, television, microwave, computer and radio, the TV did the most damage.
Hadley, grade eight, and Li, grade 11, together conducted a psychological experiment to determine if long-term memory can be affected by questions that contain presuppositions.
Delta’s three students were part of a group of eight finalists from the South of Fraser area who flew to Toronto for the fair, which took place from May 14-21. The group not only enjoyed competing in the science fair, but they also explored the city and attended numerous special events such as dances and banquets.
Congratulations to Delta’s three Canada Wide Science Fair participants!
