Myers High School at Taber, Mr. Kalma entered a science fair, then went on to compete at the Canada Wide Science Fair at Calgary. He won a trip to Ottawa with his study on the aerodynamic efficiency of flaps on airfoils.

The son of Mr. and Mrs. Don Kalma of Barn well, he hopes to eventually go into engineering, electronics or nuclear engineering. He got interested in these studies by building model air- planes. One of his delights is to stretch 100 feet of surgical tubing and another 500 feet of nylon line out in front of a model sailplane and launch it with an elastic snap into the breeze at Barnwell.
