Fraser Heights Secondary's Mohamed Fawzan Hussain, and SAIL's Mikko Lorico, Deven Marrero and Anson Exner have all been selected to attend the Canada-Wide Science Fair in Fredericton in May.

Three science projects created by four students from the Surrey School District have been selected to advance to the Canada-Wide Science Fair in New Brunswick in May.

The students won gold at the 13th-annual South Fraser Regional Science Fair that took place at Kwantlen Polytechnic University's Surrey campus April 4th and 5th

Dozens of Grade 7-12 students from Surrey and Delta's public and independent schools participated, with medals and special awards handed out for an array of unique and innovative projects.

Grand prize winners from Surrey Schools who are advancing to the national fair are:

  • Mohamed Fawzan Hussain, Grade 11, Fraser Heights Secondary, for "BCI-Neurokey - Development and Testing of a Non-Invasive Brain Computer Interface System"
  • Anson Exner, Grade 10, SAIL (Surrey Academy of Innovative Learning), for "The Intra-Urban Grow Box"
  • Mikko Lorico and Deven Marrero, Grade 8, SAIL, for "AutoParkade: Could this solve long parking wait times?"

The grand prize winners not only received medals and a certificate, but a trip to nationals – expenses paid.

Hussain was also among the winners last year, when he was in Grade 10, and attended to the national fair in Ottawa with his project that investigated using EEGs to analyze student attention during math assessment.

This year, the Canada-Wide Science Fair takes place in Fredericton, New Brunswick from May 15-17. About 500 young scientists will attend the event, competing to nearly $1 million in awards, prizes and scholarships.
