David Luo (LSEF Alum) and Family - "To me, the Louisiana Science and Engineering Fair was more than just a competition, it was something that brought out my personality and laid the foundation for my high school career. The fair really helped me realize my passions for science and mathematics and made me understand that these subjects were the routes that I needed to be on in the future. The ideas that students created and designed were simply unbelievable. I witnessed projects that detected pancreatic cancer and projects that proved mathematical phenomenons unsolved for decades. Science fair was the reason that I am the person I am today, without it, I don't think I would've been the confident scientist willing to tackle ideas that no one can imagine".
