“With your help, I was able to progress from my school science fair, to the Connecticut State Science Fair, where I received ribbons for first honors in biotechnology…There is nothing I want more than to come back to the Science Fair again next year, and during this second process, to learn more from all of you again.” – From a Student in the 2016 Program
