My name is Ossama Mahmoud, I am in grade 8 and go to the London Islamic School. I really enjoy science and math. I got inspired to do this project because I wanted to find out how clean the water is in London, especially that one of the biggest water polutants are heavy metals. I did some research and found out that I can use certain types of plants to clean water. My favorite sport is Judo, I am a blue belt and enjoy competing at high levels. This is my first year in the Canada wide science fair. In the future I would like to be a physician.
