Area of Science:

Project Title:

Effects of Mercury Poisioning on Fish

We will be testing the amounts of mercury on the fish in Bluewater Lake. There is evidence of polution in this lake. We plan to simulate the lake in fish tanks. Our reasons for this project is that we want to help the people in the community to have healthier and more edible fish. The way we hope to use a supercomputer is to put the variables for this in and use it to make a prediction about the amounts of mercury there will be in the fish in a given amount of time.
