In Canmore, Kiana Worobey is the Genome Alberta award winner at the Canadian Rockies Regional Science Fair. Her project took a statistical look at myopia and birth order. The award winner from Chinook Country is Brandon Kruger. His project used mealworms to biodegrade Styrofoam: according to his results, it turns out they do a wonderful job. According to Derek Dubs, the regional coordinator, it was a “truly an incredible project”. This year’s winner from the Southeast Alberta Regional Fair is Hailey Doucette, a Grade 10 student from McCoy High School. She used polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to find the DNA sequence for the 35s promoter in a variety of foods from the supermarket.

I spent a day at the Canadian Rockies Regional science fair and compiled a short video to show the various phases of a science fair.
