Claire Friesen, a Grade 7 student at Cremona School, received a bronze medal at the Canada wide science fair in Edmonton last week.

Claire’s mother, who attended with her daughter, said there were 120 students in the Grade 7-8 category. Of those students, 10 received a bronze standing, 10 received a silver standing, and 7 students received a gold standing.

“It was a fantastic experience! I met a lot of wonderful people!” says Claire Friesen, and that she “absolutely” plans to participate in the science fair again.

“I am looking at doing a more complicated experiment in hopes of furthering my chances of getting a gold medal next year - and also, next year's Canada wide fair is in Ottawa and I'd love to go there!”
