Congratulations to all winners of the 63rd annual Connecticut Science Fair! Nearly 500 students participated in this year’s event.  Of those, an estimated 150 students qualified as finalists. This year, Quinnipiac University provided two finalists with a four-year, $20,000 scholarship to the university. One of the awardees was Sarah E. Harkins, seventh grade student at East Haven Academy in East Haven, for her project: When I Change the Type of Antacid, How Many Millimeters of Stomach Acid Will Be Neutralized?

Governor Dannel P. Malloy graced the award ceremony with his presence and gave an inspiring welcome address. “Being here today renews one’s faith in our possibility in Connecticut,” Malloy told the audience. “The young people in our midst are capable of great things. They have put together outstanding projects and research that may one-day solve problems in our society ranging from breast cancer to our dependence on foreign energy sources. They are already working toward solutions to the great questions the world must solve in the next generation … I’m happy to be here today to celebrate your success.”
