The longest running Science Fair in Richmond, Palmer’s Science Fair highlighted an amazing number of experiments and inventions.
Mohammed Al-Seragi emerged as the top grade 8 with his project to capture toxic lead in water. Do you like tying your laces? If not, then use Nathan Ticman and Nicolas To’ invention to tie them for you! They placed second in grade 8, just ahead of Sabrina Teng and Joan Liu’s experiments with detergents.
In the grade 9 category, Abdurrahmaan Abdulaziz and Julien Mo created and tested coffee ground furniture to capture first place and special drone prizes. In environmental engineering, Michael Lee and Dickson Huang used electromagnetic waves to repair and build coral for their second place project. Finally Christin Ye and Anna Sorokina’s explored how temperature gradients can generate electricity.
The top three grade nine teams and Mohammed are competing in the Greater Vancouver Regional Science Fair at UBC, April 6-8, where last year Palmer was the Top School in the number of awards won.
