Students, family members and the school community gathered at the Leon J. Campo Salisbury Center on May 18 for the district’s Science Symposium, where the science research projects of students from both district high schools were on display.

“The Science Symposium showcases the hard work, dedication and creativity of our high school Science Research students,” said Debra Harley, the district’s Director of Math and Science. “These students have dedicated years to experimenting and discovering new advances in science.”

W.T. Clarke High School senior Harsh Patel welcomed attendees to the event, thanking all of the parents, teachers and students for their support of and dedication to the Science Research program at both schools. Following his remarks, nine seniors discussed the areas of study and findings of their three-year-long research projects, as well as the competitions they had entered and the awards they had earned with them. The presentation ensued with guests browsing more than 100 projects that demonstrated the high schoolers’ dedication and hard work.

The district extends special thanks to Harley, Science department chairpersons Debbie Langone and Nicole Hiken from East Meadow High School and W.T. Clarke High School, respectively, and the science research teachers from both campuses for their support and guidance in assisting the students’ research projects and arranging this year’s symposium.
