Jamie Richardson of Tlell, a grade 10 student at QC secondary, has finished third in the biology division at the international science fair being held in Taiwan, QCSS science teacher Peter Gadja told us Monday.
Ms Richardson is one of only two Canadians at the fair. She was invited to attend by the Science Fair Foundation of BC after her project on Hereford cattle was well received.
Ms Richardson is having a great time with her host family, according to Mr. Gadja, who also tells us she says she has made a lot of friends. The third place finish bring with it an award of 2000 Taiwanese dollars, worth we are told about $100 Canadian.
Congratulations, Jamie Richardson!
