He won a plaque and all-expense paid trip for him and a parent to travel to Los Angeles, CA on May 14-19, 2017 to participate in the International Science & Engineering Fair. The ISEF is the “olympics” of science fairs with 1,500 students participating from all 50 states and more than 70 countries. This is an incredible honor!
