Where I got some Information:
Alexandre Beaudoin was born in Drummondville, City of Canada, February, 1978. He is 35 years old.
He has one wife (Ame`lie), and four kids known as Thalie, Elric, Marek and Liam.
He got his Bachelors of Science in the year 2000, for Microbiology and Immunology at University of Montreal.
He joined the Surete` du Québec in 2000. The Surete du Québec is the police force of the Canadian Province. But his job was a special latent fingerprint development specialist, and he worked in the lab of Identification services.
After 3 years of working as a latent fingerprint scientist he became a forensic researcher in the identification lab at Surete` du Quebec. During the time Alexandre worked there he kept his Masters of Science in Health Technology Assessment and Management of the Medicine Faculty at these universities: University of Montreal, University of Ottawa in Ottawa, Universitat International de Catalunya which is located in Barcelona and Universita` Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milano, Italy.
During the year 2007 Alexandre helped organization the 30th Canadian Identification Society Education Conference in Montreal. It has become a well-known event in Canada with all the scientist that specialise in forensic identification.
From 2008-2009 he was the president of the Canadian identification society. The Canadian identification society is a club for the professional forensic investigators. In the year 2010 Alexandre became the president founder of the Association Quebecoise de Criminalistique.
He has published lots of books, including seven that are about new ways to remove latent fingerprints on porous things or surfaces. It’s called the oil red O. He is also an educator at the University of Montreal and the University of Concordia. He is also a well-known member of the International Association for Identification and is a lucky recipient of the recognition award for creativity and innovation for his work on the oil red O, he received this award in 2007.

Term 3 Project Reflection

Term 3 Reflection
3 Facts I found interesting or surprising:
Something I found quite surprising was that she did not take science at school and when she went to University she had to look up what the word Zoology meant.
Another thing I found interesting was that she was in the first study of plankton in southern Australian and Antarctic waters.
One last fact I was surprised by was that she was an author and published quite a few books about Marine Biology, they are called, ‘The Great Barrier Reef’ and ‘The Fringe of the Sea.’
2 understandings I now have are:
At first I didn’t know that she was dead, but when I did some extra research and went through a couple of websites I found out that she died in the year 2008 on the 14th of January. The year I was in year 1.
Secondly, I now know that she studied Zoology at Sydney University and was very dedicated and set herself extra projects that she worked on her in spare time, one of her teachers was extremely impressed when she handed him a copy of her book, ‘The Great Barrier Reef’ (I am pretty sure this is the one).
One wondering I still have is:
If she was still alive today would she still be studying marine biology or re-tired?

What were the most important things I learnt?
I think the most important thing I learnt is that you don’t always end up doing what you planned to do once you leave school and finish university. Like me I want to be a Doctor, but so many people tell me I would be good at clothes designing or a marine biologist (like Isobelle) and lots of other things. But that can all change.
How did I learn this?
I learnt this from Isobelle and it is true she was working and doing a really good job, but then her job got cut and after some years became a extremely well known Marine Biologist.
What am I going to do with what I have learnt?
With the work I have done on my project, I might decide to study at university and get serious about science and even become a scientist once I have left school.
To conclude, I think I worked really hard on my project and I put lots of information in it but I think I also let myself down a little bit, when it came to Ru-brick and not reading a small part of it.
