Peel Region Science Fair 2016

Peel Region Science Fair 2016 Fair was held on April 16 and 17 at Louise Arbour Secondary School in Brampton.  It was once again a successful event with about 90 projects and 115 participating students.  Projects included: 

• “Piezoelectric Vibration-Sensing Shoe” – Use of piezoelectric sensor in order to detect vibrations produced by moving people or objects and might help the visually impaired.
• “The Thermo voltaic Cell”- To build a device that uses the thermo voltaic effect to produce consistent electrical output
• “Plant Pigments: A Novel Cure for Cancer” – Effects of beta-carotene, xanthophyll and chlorophyll on cancer growth in-vitro. 
• “Can bitter melon tea reduce blood sugar?” – To test the hypothesis of the effectiveness of bitter melon which contains a substance like insulin
• “Harnessing energy from traffic utilizing piezoelectric crystals” – Idea is to use piezoelectric sensors on roads which can generate electricity due to mechanical stresses induced by the traffic vehicles

 

Twelve students representing ten projects were selected from among the winners to attend and participate in the Canada Wide Science Fair (CWSF) to be held at McGill University, Montreal from May 15 to May 20.  This is a recognition and an opportunity for some excellent studentsto represent the Peel Region at CWSF and compete with peers from across Canada. 

 

Congratulations to the students, their teachers and parents who supported them, and to the Rotary Club of Mississauga West for the continuing support of the Peel Region Science Fair.

 

 

 

 

 

 
 
Congratulations and thank you to Mississauga-West Rotarian Jennifer Ngo for her passionate work as Interact District Chair.  Her energy and dedication to support Interact Clubs in 7080 is amazing.  Through her leadership the first ever Interact Social was a huge success on Friday, April 8th.  Students from many Interact clubs came together to share their projects and ideas, and their motto of “Service Above Self”.  Jennifer has put tremendous time and effort into organizing this event, the Interact Gala that takes place on April 15th, and her time in visiting all 24 clubs across District 7080.  Well done Jennifer!   A picture of the recent Interact social can be found in the Download Files on the left side of the screen, or click HERE.

LOBSTERFEST 2016 was a great success.  Thanks go out to all members and friends who made it happen.  A big thank you also to the companies and individuals whose raffle gifts and door prizes were an important part of the fun  - and the fundraising.
 
 

 
Alan Mallory was our special speaker on December 1.   His presentation on the struggle and pain, but also the rewards for climbing Everest with his family, made an exceptional evening.  Thank you, Alan.

The Erindale Interact club continues to be very successful.  A big thanks to Jennifer Ngo who continues to be a mentor, and who sent the following link to some current pictures:
 

 
On December 15, we had our annual Christmas Party, once again at Holcim House on Lakeshore Road, and once again a most successful location.  Very many thanks to BettyJo  for coordinating the festive event.  For some pictures of the event, click HERE
 

 
 
On Sunday September 13, a large group of members enjoyed the hospitality of the International Taoist Centre, and the opportunity for fellowship with the Rotary Clubs of Orangeville and Orangeville-Highland.  We had a tour of the interesting and unusual centre in Mono, combined with a tai chi demonstartion, and an opportunity to try some very simple moves for the more adventurous.  Our efforts mainly served to raise our appreciation of the smoothness and virtuosity of the skilled practioners!  For some pictures, courtesy of MaiLee Ngo, click HERE..
 

 
On August 11, the Club had a very different meeting - a visit to the Riverwood conservancy.  Thanks to Muriel for arranging it.  Click HERE for  some pictures:
 

 
Ribfest is behind us - despite a damp Friday, and a short violent storm on Sunday, the results should reflect the hard work of the organizing committee, and the individual Rotarians and friends who worked so hard before and during the event.  
 
Congratulations and a HUGE thank you to all concerned.
 
 
 
 

 
Our club celebrated our 50th. Anniversary on May 12, 2015.   The location was the new Lakeshore Convention Centre, on Southdown Road just south of the Ontario Racquets Club.  Past and present club members enjoyed a very special evening.
 
A huge "thank you" to BettyJo Parent for much of the planning for this most successful event.

ImageHAVE YOU HEARD the Rotary theme song for 2014-2015?  It's charming, tuneful and professionally  recorded, but (in this version at least), incomprehensible to sesquilingual Canadians like your Webmaster.  

However, here it is to to enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pva2GSKWhHc‚Äč

And .....   DID YOU KNOW that Rotary has a music video to encourage new members to join?  While perhaps the video alone will not recruit many new members, it can be a useful component of a more comprehensive promotional drive.  Here is the link:  http://vimeo.com/17537785

 

 

 
The Rotary Foundation is Rotary's own charity, whose mandate is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.  Many of our members are "Sustaining members" - Rotarians who give at least the equivalent of $100 US per year to the Foundation.  Please consider joining them.  For further information on Foundation in the form of a short video, please click here.
