Mohamed Fawzan Hussain, Natasha Burgert and Sana Shams won gold at the South Fraser Regional Science Fair, earning them each a trip to the national fair in Ontario in May.
Three Surrey students are among just six selected locally to attend the Canada-Wide Science Fair in Ottawa.
The trio was chosen following the 12th-annual South Fraser Regional Science Fair, which welcomed Grade 7-12 students from Surrey and Delta public and independent schools to Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Surrey campus April 20-21.
Among the grand prize winners chosen to advance to the national fair were:
• Natasha Burgert, Grade 11, Semiahmoo Secondary, for her project “100% Solar Electric Vehicle: Applying high efficiency solar modules in sustainable transport”;
• Mohamed Fawzan Hussain, Grade 10, Fraser Heights Secondary, for his project “Can I have your attention, please?-Use of EEGs to analyze Student Attention during Math Assessment”;
• Sana Shams, Grade 9, Panorama Ridge Secondary, for her project “Radioactivity vs. Fashion.”
Burgert, Hussain and Shams (along with three Delta students) were awarded medals, a certificate, and a free trip to the nation’s capital.
In Ottawa, they will be among 500 of Canada’s top young scientists competing for nearly $1M in awards, prizes and scholarships. The Canada-Wide Science Fair takes place May 12-18.
