Three Science Awards at LISEF
Three Sayville Semifinalists Take Home Awards
From the High School Long Island Science & Engineering Fair
Sayville High School Science students had a fair to remember at Round Two of this year’s LISEF competition held on March 12, 2015.
“We had three semi-finalists at LISEF,” announced Science Research Teacher Maria Brown, “who were invited back after the Day One.” Those who qualified for Day Two were the top 25% for each category. “Not all students who participated in the competition received awards, but Sayville’s three semifinalists did!”
- Shreeya Panigrahi - Category of Earth & Space (Placed 3rd in her category);
- Emily Faughnan - Category of Behavioral and Social Science (Placed 2nd in her Category); and
- Olivia Kaczmarek - Category of Environmental Science (Placed 4th in her Category)
Since the Special Awards for the day have not been posted yet, there is a possibility these student may receive additional awards.
UP NEXT: Mrs. Brown is optimistic about her students who will be participating in the Molloy College Science Fair for ninth and tenth-grade students, on Friday, March 20th, and the NYSSEF (New York State Science & Engineering Fair Intel Division) the following Monday.
