Students from W.T. Clarke Middle School competed at the Long Island Science Congress, held at Saint Anthony’s High School on April 9. They represented the district with excellence, and one team earned eligibility to the state competition.

Ryan Giannitelli, Kelly Shand and Rina Visvanathan presented their project “What is the effect of temperature on the efficiency of a hydrogen fuel cell?” to the judges and event attendees. Their tri-fold poster presentation included the problem, hypothesis, procedure and conclusion along with researched data and evidence.

Teacher Carol Simowitz received notification the following day the group was selected to represent Long Island at the state level at the Milton Rubenstein Museum of Science and Technology in Syracuse on June 8.

“This selection is a tremendous honor representing students who worked all year to achieve their potential,” said Ms. Simowitz.
