BH-BL Science Research students earn awards at Science &
See their work at annual Science Symposium, April 27
This past Saturday, BH-BL High School Science Research students competed at the
2017 Greater Capital Region Science and Engineering Fair where
more than 100 Senior Division projects were presented, thus
making the competition quite stiff, explains Science Research
teacher Regina Reals.
Congratulations to the students who were recognized with the
- Eva Scott (senior): Her project
entitled "Investigating the Reliability of RunScribe Metrics
to perform Gait Analyses and Shoe Compatibility” earned the
Brown League Sports Science Award which is
presented to the best project that uses a scientific
approach to improve sports performance.
- Evan Karl (senior): His project
entitled "A Real-Time Tire Temperature Monitoring System for
Racecars" earned the Brown League Sports Science Award
(this award is typically only given to one project per year,
but both projects were rated so highly, the judges presented
the award to two students) and the
Yale Science and
Engineering Association award for the most outstanding
student exhibiting a project in the area of Comp Science,
Engineering, Physics or Chemisty.
- Karolyn Bedore (junior): Her project
entitled "Inflammatory Compounds" earned the Albany
Molecular Award for top prize exhibiting
entrepreneurial spirit and innovation and the Society
for In Vitro Biology award for the most outstanding
student exhibiting in areas of plant, animal, or in vitro
biology or tissue.
- Morgan LaMere (senior): His project
entitled "Management Techniques in Adirondack Lakes" earned
Stockholm Junior Water Prize for the best
projects related to water quality, resource management,
protection, treatment or waste water treatment.
- Jonathan Sinopoli (junior): His project
entitled "Immediate and Transient Alteration in Brain
Function Induced Firearm Recoil" earned an award from the
US Metric Association for a project which involves
significant amount of quantitative measurement and which
best uses the SA metric system for those measurements. Jon
also took home the Third Honorable Mention award
and will compete at the State Science Congress (Buffalo, NY)
- Mary Hamilla (junior): Her project
entitled "Analysis of T7 RNA Polymerase on Different DNA
Plasmids" earned the Albany College of Pharmacy and
Health Sciences Biomedical Excellence Award which is a
$20,000 scholarship for the individuals who demonstrate
outstanding achievement in the area of Biomedical Sciences.
Annual Science Symposium
Learn more and personally congratulate the students at the
annual Science Symposium on Thursday, April 27 at 7 p.m. in the
HS Café where the students will present their Research Science
projects. Additionally, BH-BL Science Research alum, Zachary
Wood, will be the keynote speaker.
