This past year, Walters provided sponsorship to the Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair (BASEF) to strengthen our commitment to the community and its youth. One of the students that benefitted from the BASEF organization was Eduard Brenninkmeijer, an eighth-grader who attends Oakville Christian School.
Recently, Brenninkmeijer visited Walters to present his science fair project titled Flood Water Purification at Home to a number of employees. He expressed his gratitude for BASEF and to Walters for providing him the platform to share his detailed and impressive scientific work surrounding water purification. Since the beginning of this year, his participation in three science fairs has led him to winning first place at his own school’s science fair, securing a Gold Medal at the BASEF competition, as well as receiving a Bronze Medal in the Canada-Wide Science Fair (CWSF) which recently took place in Windsor, ON.
The Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair is an annual event that provides an opportunity for grade 7-12 students in the city of Hamilton, Halton Region, Brantford, Norfolk counties and Six Nations to showcase their talents and ingenuity in Science and Technology. The event is open to over 100,000 students attending public, separate, independent, private and home schools. BASEF is one of the largest and longest, continuous running fairs in Canada and is a registered charity run by a diverse group of committee volunteers.
Walters is proud to help BASEF create a positive scientific and social experience for all the young students involved.
