Joint Science Symposium for John Abbott and Vanier Colleges

Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue – April 26, 2016 –Thursday, April 28, Vanier College joins
John Abbott College students for a joint science symposium, sharing the results of their original scientific research.

The Independent Research Project in Science course is a new approach to science class. Students participate in research in a bustling microbiology lab, a state-of-the-art microscopy facility, an internationally-recognised research institute, or a newly minted research space nestled within a college.
Both Vanier and John Abbott students presenting their work on Thursday are strong, motivated students keen to experience the excitement of original scientific research first hand.

This group of dedicated teenagers who are graduating this semester, are continuing their post-secondary education in scientific research, others in teaching, medical practice or law. There is nothing outside the realm of possibilities for this group.
The projects will be presented from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Atrium of the Anne-Marie Edward Science building at John Abbott College Abbott College. The poster sessions and oral presentations cover a very broad range of scientific disciplines.

26 separate projects will be presented by the students themselves either using posters or oral presentations.

Here is a small sampling of the projects:

“Going out on a Limb; an Analysis of the Components of Dynamic Balance in Lower Limb Amputees”

“Influencing the Chirality of Complex Microarchitectures”

“Role of mTORC1 in the activation of macrophages by lipopolysaccharide of Escherichia coli”

“Surface Plasmon Resonance and Malarial Gene Strain (Plasmodium Malariae COX-I Gene)”

"Evaluating the Efficacy of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR)"

“Harvesting heat energy from compost to power LED lights using thermoelectric coolers”

“Understanding Intuitive Moral Judgment: How Agents, Deeds and Consequences Affect Spontaneous Decision-Making”
