The Canadian Science Fair Journal is excited to kick off the 2019-2020 publication year with five exceptional research articles by students from across Canada. This year the journal will be releasing articles on a monthly basis - keep your eye out for some more incredible work to be published over the next several months.
A big thank you to the volunteer editorial board for their mentorship and guidance in helping authors to prepare their work for publication.
Congratulations to all 2019-2020 authors, both published and to-be-published, on another exciting year in Canadian youth science.
Due to their dangerous health risks, such as cancer, the concentration of THMs in the water is regulated, and the guideline in Canada is of 100 µg/L (Health Canada, 2016). However, THM levels in Manitoba, especially along the distribution system, are extremely high and exceed the limit.
Independent travel and the ability to interact with the world are two of the greatest challenges facing blind/ visually impaired (BVI) persons (Jacobson, 1998). How to interact, map, navigate the environment, and move through it efficiently and collision-free are challenges faced when utilizing traditional tools, such as the white cane and guide dog (information collected from this research’s focus groups). My goal was to develop a more effective solution to the social and navigational challenges faced by the BVI community.
Rural landscapes in Alberta are changing. The number of small acreages is growing, and these new rural residents often need, and benefit from, resources on how best to manage their land and animals. Rural residents have a direct impact on the natural environment and should, therefore, practice land stewardship.
Given the current constraints in Parkinson’s disease diagnosis, the main question of this investigation is: how accurately and efficiently can an automatic machine learning model, which analyzes historical and live user demographic, movement, and speech data, diagnose Parkinson’s disease as compared to existing, traditional procedures?
This experiment explored the connection between the posture that teens demonstrate while using their handheld devices to the rising rates of depression in this demographic and made a connection between Amy Cuddy’s study and peoples’, specifically teens’, posture while they are on their devices and mental health issues.
