Ottawa Regional Science Fair - 28 March, 2015

The CMOS judges were Martin Taillefer and Craig Hamm

First Prize: $200 and a CMOS certificate

Shamus McCoy, Grade 12

Indicator Species of the Passamaquoddy Bay (Bay of Fundy)

Shamus participated in a science school trip to the Bay of Fundy and he analysed data collected by him about certain species of rock barnacles and sea urchin in an attempt to use these species as a barometer of climate change.  This was a very clever project that in the judges' view was deserving of a CMOS award.

Second Prize: $100 and a CMOS certificate

Maya Ladki & Megan Wright, Grade 8

Into the Storm.  Hurricanes versus Climate Change

Maya and Megan collected hurricane data from the past 100 years.  They analysed and assessed storm intensities and tried to correlate with climate change effects over the past 100 years.  Overall the project was well conceived and was an excellent start to their understanding of meteorology and climate. Their data analysis needed more substantiation.

First Prize:

$150.00

Stephanie Delisle, Bateau Auto-Nettoyeur

This was a little prototype system to be used to skim ocean surface to collect debris and garbage on the ocean surface.  The development, design and execution was outstanding - impressing both judges.

Two Second Prizes:

$75.00

Sreepriya Pulyassary, Oil Spill Ocean Size Problem

Inspired by the BP Oil Spill.  Oil Spill clean-up analysis of different ocean basins.  The development of the project was excellent.

-----------------------------

$75.00

Alex & Mia Bracanovich, Duck Duck Oil Spill

Also Inspired by the BP Oil Spill.  This was an analysis of the type of soaps used to clean wildlife after a major ocean oil spill.  Then they inferred how the chemicals of the soaps used would affect the local ocean-eco system.

Ottawa Regional Science Fair 2013

The Ottawa Regional Science Fair (ORSF) 2013 was held at Carleton University in April.

As has been the case since at least 1977, the CMOS Ottawa Centre presented awards at the Fair. The criterion is simple: excellence in a meteorological and / or oceanographic theme. The Fair received a great number of projects from students in grades 7 to 12. All of the projects were perused; twelve projects were considered to have meteorological and / or oceanographic content or application; they were selected for judging.  The CMOS judges were Michael Ott (DFO), and Leah Braithwaite (MSC-EC).

First Prize (Certificate, $100.00, school plaque) was awarded to: Shamus McCoy of Immaculata High School.
Project entitled:“Extinction!”

Second Prize (Certificate, $75.00) was awarded to: Maximilian Kelland of Ashbury College.
Project entitled: "Inversions, Jet Streams and Ozone: Exploring high altitude weather".

All awardees also received copies of "Two Ways of Knowing" published during International Polar Year (and demonstrating the integration of western science and Inuit traditional knowledge) courtesy of the Canadian Ice Service as well as a certificate with the CMOS logo and a brief description of the organization and website address. Dr. Malcolm Butler, ORSF Head Judge (Dean of Science, Carleton University) and Jim Reicker (Co-ordinator, Special Awards) also received copies of ‘Two Ways of Knowing’ in recognition of their contributions to the ORSF.
