Laurentian SETAC participates in Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair

Laurentian SETAC continued to sponsor the Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair (www.basef.ca) with a special award this year. The Laurentian Chapter of SETAC award, along with a $200 prize, is given to the best projects on a topic related to environmental toxicology, chemistry, pollution, contamination, remediation, or environmental protection. Judging for the award was conducted by L-SETAC members. While there were a great number of interesting and well-designed projects, the judges decided to give the award to two special projects. Anika Gupta, a grade 7 student from Sir William Osler Elementary School – Effects of pesticides on the brain and relationships with neurodegenerative diseases Jessica Bohm, a grade 8 student from St. Augustine Elementary Schools – Crudely corrosive: comparing the effect of light and heavy crude oils on steel pipeline corrosion

Thank you to the L-SETAC members who volunteered to be special award judges at BASEF. Judging is a great experience as the students are excited to present their projects and very engaged in science. We are looking for judges every year, so if you’re interested, do not hesitate to contact L-SETAC at
