Student repeats science fair win

It's two golds in a row for a Grade 1 Uplands student, who also won best in fair at the Northern Science and Innovation Society science fair

A student who won gold for her project last year repeated her win and also earned the best in fair award at the Northwest Science and Innovation Society (NSIS) Science Fair.

Uplands Grade 1 student Emilie Pouladi won best in fair and won gold for her project Banana Slip in the kindergarten to Grade 1 category.

“Her project this year was to see whether one really does slip on banana peels like cartoon characters on TV. She padded herself up and tried to slip on banana peels on all types of surfaces,” said fair organizer Christine Slanz.

Last year, Pouladi won gold for her project Is my Dog Smarter than my Brother?

Kaylyn Braam, a Heritage Online School Grade 1 student, won silver for Colourful Flowers. Bronze went to Logan Stewart, a Thornhill Primary Grade 1 student, for What is a Battery?

In the Grade 2-3 category, homeschooled students Ana and Maia Purita won gold for Hatching Coloured Eggs. Finn Ignas, a Veritas Grade 3 student won silver for Does Music Affect Plant Growth? Bronze went to Joey Pouladi, a Grade 3 Uplands student, for Bowling.

In the Grade 4-5 category, gold went to homeschooled Grade 5 student Joel Koerner for What Has More Vitamin C? Silver went to Kamryn Bolton, a Cassie Hall Grade 4 student, for Solar System. Bronze went to Sam Bond, a Grade 4 distance learning student, for Building a Better Car.
