Students from across the Nutmeg state won awards at the Connecticut Science & Engineering Fair (CSEF) during Saturday’s ceremony at Quinnipiac University. The individual high school physical and life science winners, as well as the Urban School Challenge and Alexion Biotechnology winners, listed below, will all go to the prestigious Intel International Science & Engineering Fair, to be held this May in Phoenix, Arizona. New this year is the CSEF Board of Directors award, the winner of which also gets the chance to compete at Intel ISEF.
Other winners from CSEF will represent Connecticut and compete for millions more in cash and scholarships at competitions including the International Sustainable World Engineering, Energy & Environment Project Olympiad (I-SWEEEP), GENIUS Olympiad, and the Broadcom MASTERS competition.
U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal joined the ceremony, and thanked all of the parents and volunteers who made the Fair possible, and especially the students, for “restoring his faith” in what is possible in America.
Physical Science Winners from Woodbridge are the Grades 7+8 Team – 1st Place: Ana Boccanfuso, a Woodbridge resident, and Saunder Saffran of Amity Regional Middle School (Bethany) – The TempBot.
