Six Woodland Middle School eighth-graders were recognized for their scientific research and experiments at the LISEF-SSP Broadcom MASTERS Fair on March 23, one of three science fairs held by the Long Island Science and Engineering Fair. Of Woodland’s three student teams, two received honorable mention and one was awarded third place for their work.

According to its website, LISEF promotes three science fairs that allow students to present their work to more than 1,000 judges consisting of leading scientific professionals. The middle school fair, a partnership between the Society for Science and the Public and Broadcom, encourages sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders to perform an investigation and present their findings to a panel of judges.

During the fair, held at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, more than 200 middle school students presented their research and in-depth experiments in biology, behavioral science, physics, earth science and mathematics to representatives of local universities, scientific institutions and other professionals in their related fields.  

The results for Woodland’s students were favorable. Kate Laico and Carly Herman captured second place with their experiment, “Rethink How You Drink.” The team of Caleb Philips and Mitchell Goldberg received honorable mention for their project, “Dive into Aquaponics,” an honor also bestowed upon Tyler Sugrim and Julian Shin for their work, “Hurricane Proof Homes.”

The district congratulates these students on the success of their scientific research and applauds each of their accomplishments.
