Peninsula students James Ho and Sonia Stewart both won medals at the Canada Wide Science Fair earlier this month in Fredericton

Medal finish for Peninsula science students

National event ends with gold, silver medals for Semiahmoo and Earl Marriott secondary science students.

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.
