Grade 11 student has top project at MSSSVideo available here

Around 650 students packed into the Duckworth Centre at the University of Winnipeg today for the 38th annual Manitoba Schools Science Symposium.

Around 410 projects were entered into the provincial science fair. The public could view the projects between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. Sunday before the awards were handed out.

"Every year the quality of the projects increases and this year is no exception," said Richard Cuthbert, the symposium planning committee co-chair. "This year is by far the best I've seen."

Yale Michaels, a Grade 11 student from Grant Park High School, who will be representing Manitoba for the third year in a row at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, was awarded the top senior project today. He was given the award for his project that looked at ways of delivering cancer drugs, he said.

"The long-term goal is to have something to target only where the disease is present," Michaels said after the award ceremony. "The focus of the project was to create a way to treat someone's cancer cells only instead of the healthy cells."
