The science research program at North High School wrapped up another successful school year with “Celebrate Science Night” on May 30. This culminating event recognizes the contributions and accomplishments of this year’s science research students in grades 9 through 12.
The evening started in the North High commons, where guests perused a gallery of poster board presentations created by science research students. Family, friends, and fellow students viewed the presentation materials and discussed the projects with the students who conducted research.
The second half of the program featured multimedia presentations in the library, emceed by research students Alexandra Katchis and Kevin Khadavi. Students shared entertaining and informative presentations about their research methods and offered helpful insights for other students in the science research program. The event concluded with a send-off for graduating seniors.
More than 70 students participated in the science research program at North High this school year. The students’ research and presentations were recognized for excellence at prestigious competitions such as the Regeneron Science Talent Search (formerly Intel), the Long Island Science and Engineering Fair, the Long Island Junior Science and Humanities Symposium, Long Island Psychology Fair, Long Island Math Fair, Long Island Science Congress, WAC Lighting Foundation Invitational Science Fair, Kathy Belton Science Fair at Molloy College, and the South Asian American Women’s Alliance Science Fair (SAAWA).
North High science research teachers/advisors are Christopher Bambino, Laura Kachmar, Maya Lerner, Alan Schorn, Samantha Sforza, and Jessica Schust, department chair.
