On Tuesday, March 7, 2023, five teams of students from Ms. Kelly’s Science Research class participated in the Long Island Science and Engineering Fair’s Thermo Fisher MASTERS Middle School Science Fair at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, NY. Students began designing their projects back in October of 2022. Science Research is held during zero period at HTH, so these budding scientists are stretching their minds at 7:08 AM each morning!
Two teams of students earned the Third Place prize in their respective categories:
In the category of Biology: Medicine/ Health, Julian Abell and Eva Figueroa won Third Place for their project, “Investigating the Efficacy of Different Disinfectants.”
In the category of Physics, Ari Lespinasse, Lea Cardenas, and Elmer Alonso Romero Flores won Third Place for their project, “Investigating Resistivity of Different Metals.”
All 13 students who participated reported enjoying the competition in spite of the nervousness they originally felt. They readily shared not only their experiences, but also tips for success with the entire Science Research class on Wednesday Morning. All students (8 teams) will participate in the SAAWA Middle School Science Fair, sponsored by the South Asian American Women’s Alliance on March 28.
