Albany -- An Albany high school student and his teacher are headed to Phoenix this weekend, as a finalist in an international Science Fair.

Westover High School junior Brian McCarthy took a first place in the Georgia State Science Fair this spring. Now he and his science project will be judged against 14-hundred students from 45 countries, at the Intell International Science and Engineering Fair.

McCarthy's winning science project tested teeth whitening products, to see which were most effective. Brian McCarthy said "Just to be able to meet those people and just get to know those people and what their projects are on, it's just going to be the experience of a lifetime."

 Biology teacher Stacy Brunelle said "He is going to meet some incredible people and some incredible science teachers from around the country. I think he'll enjoy that."

McCarthy and Brunelle will spend one week in Phoenix at the International Science Fair. More than 3 million dollars worth of scholarships and awards will be presented at the competition.

McCarthy's science project determined that Arm and Hammer brand teeth whitening toothpaste is most effective on coffee stains. Crest is best on soda stains.
