On April 12, three SD43 students received awards at the Greater Vancouver Regional Science Fair Awards Ceremony. This event is the largest STEAM-based competition in the province for students in grades 7 to 12.
Congratulations to Joseph Chiao and Joseph Goyder, Centennial Secondary School students who won silver medals in the senior division and $2000 scholarships each to UBC for their project DATECS (Direct Atmospheric Thermal Energy Capturing System), a theoretical process that produces electricity by reducing the temperature of the Earth's atmosphere.
Congratulations to Rachel Schmid, a Riverside Secondary student, who won a bronze medal for her work on CRISPR technology (gene editing for utilization in potential Ebola vaccines).
We are incredibly proud of your accomplishments!
