Ryan’s Report:

Wednesday can be considered the most critical day during our trip, as we presented our projects to the ISEF judges.  Ready to go by 8 am, our crew of 7 made our way to the LA convention Center to represent Connecticut.  Judging took place from 8:30 am to 11:45 am, when we got our first break.  We ate lunch and returned at one o’clock for the second judging session.  After proving our worth for another 5 hours, we went back to the hotel to get ready for a trip to Universal Studios. 

We traveled to Universal Studios for an enjoyable evening.  The theme park based entirely off of the movie production company, provided entertainment for all.  Some favorites were “Revenge of the Mummy”, “Shrek 4D”, “The Simpsons Ride” and the world famous Universal Studio tour.  The trip was an entertaining ending to an important day.
