MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS EXCEL AT LONG ISLAND SCIENCE CONGRESS
We have an exciting announcement from Dr. Robert Wankmuller, Director of Science.
"This year we had a science research class that met on alternating days during lunch periods for 7th grade students one day and 8th grade students the other day. Students with the top projects submitted a 5 minute video presentation of their science research projects on Google Slides. I am happy to share the exciting placements with all of you. This would not have been possible, especially this year where the videos had to be recorded and created into a YouTube channel, if it were not for the incredibly hard work of the research teacher, Katie O'Callaghan. Congratulations to all of these winning students and to Katie!"
