Yesterday, Round 2 of the Long Island Science and Engineering Fair took place at the Crest Hollow Country Club. Wheatley science research students Justin Borczuk, Allison Chowdhury, Aakash Jhaveri, Lauren Perry and Kuan Yu all presented their projects to a pool of professional scientist judges.
- Allison Chowdhury and her partner Greta Huang from Commack High School took second place for their project in the category Materials and Bioengineering.
- Aakash Jhaveri and Kuan Yu won third place in the Cellular and Molecular Biology.
- Lauren Perry and Justin Borczuk were awarded honorable mention for their projects in the Materials/Biongineering and Medicine/Health categories, respectively.
Students who win first place in their category advance to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), where over 1500 students from over 80 nations worldwide come to compete for more than $4 million in prize money.
Thank you to our Science Research Coordinator, Tom Van Bell, for his work with the students in preparation for this competition.
