The 53rd annual Hawaii State Science and Engineering Fair opened this morning with an address from Senator Dan Inouye.

“Although I am not a scientist, I am a political scientist,” said Sen. Inouye. “So If you want to run for office, give me a call, ” he added. Sen. Inouye reminded the students that our current president is from Hawaii and encouraged them to strive to meet their goals.

Hawaii Academy of Science President, Dr. Gareth Wynn Williams told students, “The most important thing you can do today is talk to the judges.” Sumitomo Corporation of America’s Gino Antoniello is serving as a celebrity judge for the event and representing Honolulu Rail For Growth at the fair. During the awards ceremony tomorrow night, Antoniello will present the Hawaii Academy of Science with a check for $25,000 as a collective donation from the Honolulu Rail For Growth team of companies.
