Sarah Galvin, an ASU freshman electrical engineering student, is among the winners of the 2014 Arizona Governor’s Celebration of Innovation Awards. She was presented one of four Future Innovators of the Year awards at a ceremony on Nov. 13.
The awards program is organized by the Arizona Technology Council in partnership with the Arizona Commerce Authority.
Galvin was recognized for a research project she developed as a student at Corona del Sol High School in Tempe.
The research involves experimentation with using combinations of various materials to make devices that could pave the way for the next generation of electronics.
Earlier this year, the project earned her a first-place prize in the electrical and mechanical engineering category in the Intel International Science and Technology Fair for high school students.
Galvin is continuing the research at ASU. Read more about her work.
