Greenwich students win big in I-SWEEP Olympiad

Six Connecticut students received recognition at the 8th annual International Sustainable World Engineering, Energy & Environment Project (I-SWEEEP) Olympiad, held May 7-11 in Houston, Texas. With more than 480 projects from 67 countries chosen to compete, this was a highly prestigious event, and Connecticut’s own showed their mettle, including one Greenwich student who won first place overall in the Energy category. All of the Connecticut students participated in the Connecticut Science & Engineering Fair held earlier this year.
