Annual Science Fair


    Elementary students districtwide showed their inventive sides with their science projects

    If one can imagine canyons of Science Fair project boards filling each gymnasium, it would be a start.

    All on the same evening, Sayville parents enjoyed the Annual Districtwide Science Fair Projects at Cherry Avenue, Lincoln Avenue, and Sunrise Drive elementary schools where inventiveness, industry, and creativity were definitely on display.

    There were an impressive assortment of topics, ranging from the widely practical to the wildly creative, evoking curiosity and amazement, but all demonstrating the essential elements for scientific research. (Pictures are worth a thousand words, see photos.)

    Congratulations go to all the students for their hardwork, but especially to those students (see names below) who were selected to compete in the Brookhaven National Lab Elementary Science Fair* in the spring.

    Good luck to all!
