Congratulations to Lior Levy (Grade 10 MaCS Student) and Roi Levy (Grade 9 MaCS student) for their Gold Medal win at the annual Toronto Science Fair. They will represent Toronto in the Canada-Wide Science Fair 2014 in Windsor from May 10th – 17th. An abstract of their project ” One Little Cell, A World of Possibilities” is below.
Abstract: Cultivating Coccolithophoroid algae has significant potential in CO2 sequestration. We designed a novel, high efficiency, modular, portable, closed photobioreactor panel to optimize algal growth and optical density. Our investigation yielded the optimal growth conditions necessary for large scale cultivation, biofuel, biomass and CaCO3 production, enhanced CO2 bioremediation and climate regulation.
