On Feb. 16, under the watchful eyes of the “Science Technology” sculpture in the Utah Capitol Rotunda, USTAR researchers and USTAR-supported entrepreneurs held a Science Fair. More than 20 lawmakers stopped by, and one representative said something to the effect of “Well, that’s the most impressive Rotunda display I’ve ever seen.”
The event received a good amount of media coverage:
