Rotten to the Core

Student: Adrian Howie

District/Region: Halifax Region

Event: 2007 Canada-Wide Science Fair

Adrian is a student at St. Agnes School and in his project he did experiments comparing organically and conventionally grown Nova Scotia apples.

He tested the rate of browning over several hours using a series of photographs and comparing treatments such as lemon juice and various cutting methods. He also compared Courtland and Red Delicious apples. He tested the rate of decay over several weeks, using histology to examine the apples at the start and end.

His conclusion: there is a noticeable difference in the rate of browning and decay between organic and conventional apples.

Adrian's project earned a Bronze Medal in Life Sciences and a University of Western Ontario Scholarship at the 2007 Canada-Wide Science Fair in Truro. Adrian is a young Nova Scotian celebrating science and discovery Congratulations Adrian!
