Young Inventor Spotlight: Christopher & Steri-Cool

Here at the Connecticut Science Center, we are so proud to partner with Connecticut Invention Convention to highlight kid inventors from around our state. Throughout the year, we spotlight students who have participated in Connecticut Invention Convention in our Invention Dimension gallery. We are so excited that we can highlight these amazing students in a series of inspiring recorded conversations.

This month, we are spotlighting Christopher and his invention, the Steri-Cool. Christopher is a very impressive young inventor who wanted to create a way for people to disinfect and soothe their cuts and scraps while on the go.

If you want to see Christopher’s prototype in person, check out our Invention Dimension gallery during your next visit to the Connecticut Science Center.
