Roy Anthony is the founder of the Eastern Newfoundland chapter of the Young Scientists of Canada (YSC). His students at Mount Pearl Senior High School in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland are encouraged to work on real-life science projects, albeit sometimes with odd materials. During the annual Science Olympics, students have been asked to use their problem-solving skills to build a tower from spaghetti, a car out of golf balls and a stool from newspaper. The approach seems to work. Many of the students Mr. Anthony meets in the YSC go on to further studies in science.
