SAIL students on the podium at Canada-wide Science Fair


Deven Marrero and Mikko Lorico, students at SAIL (Surrey Academy of Innovative Learning), won silver at the Canada-wide Science Fair in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Mankeerat Sidhu (below, also from SAIL) won bronze in his age category.

Three Surrey students who competed at the Canada-wide Science Fair in New Brunswick came home with medals from the national competition.

SAIL (Surrey Academy of Innovative Learning) Grade 8 students Deven Marrero and MIkko Lorico won silver in the junior category for their Mankeerat.jpgproject: "AutoParkade: Could this solve long parking wait times?" Their project ranked in the top five percent in the country in their age category.

Mankeerat Singh Sidhu, a Grade 10 student who is also enrolled at SAIL (as well as Khalsa School), won a bronze medal in the intermediate category for "A Hand For Hope." His robotic prosthetic creation ranked in the top 10 percent in Canada for his age group.

Grade 10 SAIL student Anson Exner (with project "The Intra-Urban Grow Box") also competed at nationals, as did Fraser Heights Secondary Grade 11 student Mohamed Fawzan Hussain, with "BCI-Neurokey - Development and Testing of a Non-Invasive Brain Computer Interface System."

Surrey students were among about 500 student scientists who competed in Fredericton May 15-17. They earned a spot at the national contest after winning gold at the South Fraser Regional Science Fair in April.
