New Haven's Hopkins takes home the gold
Twenty-six teams from 18 high schools across the state vied for medals in 23 events.
The contests ranged from building and flying a model helicopter, to solving a crime using forensic evidence, to re-creating an object relying solely on a partner’s description.
Hopkins won the gold medal and earned the chance to compete at the National Science Olympiad at Central Florida University in Orlando in May.
Hopkins has taken the gold every year since entering the CTSO in 2009.
South Windsor High School Team A earned the silver medal this year, and Wilton High School Team A won the bronze.
