Sophomores Shine at Somers Science Fair
Not only did 11 John Jay sophomores present their work in poster format at the Somers Science Fair on June 3, seven were recognized for their proposed research. “It was a great day for our students,” said Ann Marie Lipinsky, Science Research teacher.
The Somers Science Fair is a sophomore-only event that provides first-year Science Research students the opportunity to present their intended research design in a formal setting. The projects are judged in large part by seniors who have successfully completed 3 years of Science Research.
1st place in Medicine and Health - Alice Cai and Ciara McGroary
2nd place in Medicine dan Health - Julia Oliver and Jocelyn Blachar
3rd place in Medicine and Health - Meg Winter and Emma Klares
3rd place in Behavior - Samantha Donnelley
“Even as the year is winding down, it's great everyone finishing so strong,” said Dr. Steven Siciliano, principal of John Jay High School.
Way to go, sophomores!
