Students Excel at Connecticut’s Largest Science & Engineer Competition

March 22, 2016

Once again, our young women did exceedingly well at the Connecticut Science & Engineering Fair (CSEF). CSEF, a yearly, statewide science and engineering fair provides a forum for middle and high school students to showcase their scientific prowess. Held at Quinnipiac University, the event helps attract young people to careers in science and engineering while developing skills essential to critical thinking. More than 12,000 students representing 127 schools competed for 700 coveted spaces at the fair.
