We take our smartphones for granted, and nobody leaves home without one, but do we really know our own phones that well? Most of us have had a incident when we broke our phone. A trip to the repair shop and your phone is back in service. We don’t really think about what happens to our phones as we leave them, and most of us would just assume it is a form of black magic and sorcery. In this blog post, I will show you how I fix phones, and how you can too. Continue reading
What if I told you that you could dramatically speed up your computer hardware by tweaking around a few numbers? Overclocking can allow your $150 dollar Processor to have the performance of a $400 Processor. This is why I am addicted to overclocking.
Microfluidics is a field that has many applications, and applies to many different areas. In modern science, it has been shown in many different fields how sometimes matter behave differently in small quantities. In small volumes, fluids’ mixing and flow patterns change, and allowing for more efficient processing of the fluid. The applications of microfluidics include inkjet printers, cell biology and molecular separation.
In this FSL session, the Year Ones and some of the Year Twos visited Stem Cell Technologies. Continue reading
In the last few months I have been working on building a Musical Tesla coil, and I thought it is probably time I write a blog post about it. I started this project immediately after finishing my Laser Cutter and Electric Bike projects. Continue reading
For my Citizen Science Fair project, I chose the Eyewire 3D Neuron Mapping project. I chose this because I was curious about the utilization of of people rather than supercomputers to process large quantities of data. Continue reading
Over the past few months, I have been participating in the Citizen Science Project EyeWire, a game designed by Sebastian Seung’s Computational Neuroscience Lab at Princeton (previously in MIT), launched in December 12, 2012 for the purpose of mapping 3D neurons in the retina of a mouse.

On the December 2 session of FSL, we had our second session on chemistry. We went to UBC where we got the opportunity to work in a real lab in the chemistry building. Like the last time we were at UBC, we met at the bus loop before slowly making our way to the building. Continue reading
