Kerry was allowed to do research at Columbia University due to her high school research on sleep disorders. She won Second Place in both Research Proposal and Completed Projects at SCISEF. "I am so excited to let you know that I was accepted to the Cardiothoracic Surgery Department at Columbia Medical School doing my own research on heart transplant and the LVAD machine, working on new surgical techniques for cardiothoracic surgery on experimental pigs, and being a member of the organ transplant team. I am really excited because we fly all over the country to retrieve all of the donor hearts for the surgeons. I will be working under the guidance of Dr. Naka, Director of the Cardiac Transplantation and Mechanical Circulatory Support Programs at Columbia, and his research fellows."
Ayesha won Second Place at SCISEF in both Research Proposal and Completed Project for her research project on drug delivery for depression.

It was so interesting to see the other projects!

Here is a haiku to sum up my experience at SCSEF 2015: (SC)SEF twenty-fifteen The best one yet: panera kahoot, laughs, and smiles

I had a great time at SCSEF. It was very educational to present to the judges and receive advice on how to improve my project. I hope to participate again next year!

My confidence and self-assurance of my knowledge on my topic rose after The CT-STEM Science Fair. It is a great way to practice public speaking and interacting with judges that could be professionals in your field
CT-STEM has been a great opportunity for me to become more comfortable with presenting my research to professionals. There is no better way to learn something than to teach it, and CT-STEM has allowed me to have a deeper understanding of my topic because of that. It is a truly valuable experience for researchers on all levels.
The CT STEM Fair is a great opportunity to present and discuss your research with the judges and other students at the Fair. I look forward to participating again next year!
Having a chance to see the hard work of our peers while getting feedback from a panel of judges was a great experience. The variety of activities always gave us something to do, which, partnered with the excellent organization, proved to be a well-spent Saturday.
The CT STEM fair was a great experience for me, both to present the work that I was proud of and to see other students' impressive projects!
CT Stem has provided me with an outstanding experience and has given me the opportunity to refine my research through the help of judges
