“It was amazing just being among these future scientists, but I was ecstatic when Maxwell won third place!” science teacher Nadia Parikka, who also attended the conference, said. “ISEF is like the Olympics of science competitions. The award ceremony was so impressive, we felt like we were at the Oscars. I was honored to be there to support Maxwell.”
