Congratulations to science research students Jonathan Sinopoli and Evan Karl for placing second and third, respectively, in their sessions at the Eastern Junior Science and Humanities Sub-regional Symposium. Jon will go forward to present a poster at the State level competition in March.
JSHS is one of the most prestigious forums for young scientists in the country. Each spring in Albany, NY, young scientists representing high schools from Westchester County to Western New York State present the results of original scientific research before 600+ fellow students, teachers, mentors and judges. Their work is the culmination of a three-year Science Research in the High School program that unites students, teachers and mentors in dynamic research.
This program has cultivated future scientists from schools in every region of the state. The high school students chosen to present at the Upstate NY JSHS are finalists from three regional forums. Of the hundreds of students who present their papers at these regional forums, only a select number are chosen statewide to present at the Upstate NY JSHS in Albany. Way to go, Spartans!
