Nutrition Fruition

Student: Katie Collier

District/Region: Chignecto Central Region

Event: 2007 Canada-Wide Science Fair

Katie is a student at Northumberland Regional High School and her project compared the Vitamin C concentrations of organically and conventionally grown navel oranges.

Through the conduction of a redox titration using iodate solution, Vitamin C levels were determined by the endpoint of the titration in conjunction with chemical equations and calculations. Her conclusion: she discovered the Vitamin C concentration of organically grown navel oranges is approximately 87% more than that of conventionally grown navel oranges.

Her project earned an Honourable Mention in Biotechnology & Pharmaceutical Sciences at the 2007 Canada-Wide Science Fair in Truro. Katie is a young Nova Scotian celebrating science and discovery. Congratulations Katie!
