A middle school science fair project earns the student an invitation to a university lab.
A Georgia seventh-grader who was inspired to do a cancer-related science fair project after some of his friends’ moms were diagnosed with breast cancer is being heralded for his project that swept awards at the state’s science fair.
The project, which examined whether an antioxidant found in green tea could prevent breast cancer tumors in planaria, a type of flatworms, also earned Stephen Litt, 12, an invitation to visit a Tufts University research lab over his spring break.
