A pair of student from two Surrey schools are back home following bronze medal wins at the 2024 Canada-Wide Science Fair (CWSF) in Ottawa last week.

Grade 10 students Visisht Kodali (Surrey Academy of Innovative Learning) and Sreya Kurup (Frank Hurt Secondary) were both awarded bronze Excellence Awards at the CWSF for their projects. 

Kodali developed an app called WoundSense, which uses artificial intelligence to diagnose wounds and provide treatment advice to users.

Meanwhile Kurup impressed with her project exploring the impact of natural antibiotics on bacteria, particularly the effectiveness of vitamin C and ginger on bacterial growth.

Held at Carleton University, the CWSF is the largest annual youth science fair in Canada. With 400 finalists presenting 330 projects, the event drew more than 7,000 visitors this year.

The pair earned a spot at nationals following gold medal wins at the South Fraser Regional Science Fair earlier this spring.

Congratulations Visisht & Sreya!
