A stunning 35 Roslyn High School students walked away with awards from the WAC Lighting Foundation Invitational Science Research Fair held at Manhasset High School on April 15.

The fair, held annually, is run by the Research Association which is a consortium of teachers from 12 areas schools: Commack High School, Great Neck North High School, Great Neck South High School, Herricks High School, Jericho High School, Locust Valley High School, Manhasset High School, Roslyn High School, Schrieber High School, Southside High School, Syosset High School and the Wheatley School.

While approximately 50 percent of the projects entered in this fair win awards, nearly 65 percent of the Roslyn projects did.

Additionally, Roslyn students won top honors in 5 of the 16 categories represented at the fair.

“We’re extremely proud of all our students’ work,” said Allyson Weseley, Roslyn’s representative on the Research Association Board. “We are fortunate to have the support of a terrific team of research teachers, Mr. Joe Dispigno, Mr. Vincent Kreyling, Ms. Alison Morin, Ms. Andrea Pearlman, and Dr. Todd Postol.”

This year’s student winners were Joshua Flashner and Andrew Goldberg, First Place – Computer Science; Johanna Kann, First Place Behavioral Science – Senior Division; Feyi Rufai and Olivia Viruet Quintero, Asher Bykov, First Place Behavioral Science – Junior Division; Makenzie Komack and Nicole Blattman, First Place – Earth and Environmental Science; and Jeffrey Yu, First Place – Prototype Engineering.
