Shruthi Bandi, a Grade 8 student from Queen Charlotte Intermediate, was at the national science fair recently held in Windsor, Ontario.  Shruthi won gold in the Junior Division. She was also awarded a Discovery Challenge Award, handed out to projects that create new knowledge.

Shruthi has found bacteria which can fight against Staph infections commonly caught in hospitals. Many staph infections are now resistant to antibiotics. Shruthi believes her research could lead to a new antibiotic. Lindsay Carroll met Shruthi at Queen Charlotte to find out more about her project called "Why Micro-organisms are useful to humans".
