A pair of Semiahmoo Peninsula high school students were among four from Surrey and Delta to bring home hardware from last week’s Canada Wide Science Fair.
Semiahmoo Secondary’s James Ho earned a silver medal for his ‘Exoskeleton Arm Utilizing Flexible Air Muscles’, along with a $2,000 entrance scholarship to Western University; Earl Marriott Secondary’s Sonia Stewart won bronze for her ‘Monitoring Medication Adherence-Part 2’ project.
The impressive finish by the South Fraser Regional finalists was the best seen since the region began participating in 2007, chair Favian Yee said in a news release.
A total of eight Surrey and Delta students were selected to represent the region at the 54th National Science Fair, held May 10-17 in Fredericton, N.B. The event drew approximately 500 Grade 7-12 students from across Canada.
Gold medals were also won by Delta’s Meaghan MacKenzie (Southpointe Academy) and Surrey’s Om Agarwal of Cedar Hills Elementary.
