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!"
