Shoreham-Wading River High School junior Julianna O’Neill was invited to meet with United States Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm on her recent visit to Brookhaven National Laboratory. Julianna presented the work on microplastics that has been a focus of the SPARK (Student Partnerships for Advanced Research and Knowledge) program at BNL for the last year. The meeting was a highlight for both Julianna as well as SPARK, showcasing the strong relationship SWR Science Research students and Science Research teacher Dana Schaefer have built with BNL, and the high-level research that SPARK students engage in each year in collaboration with their teachers and BNL scientists.

Egg-citing Growth and Eggs-periments, Myth Busters, The Power of Wax and research on taste, smell and sound tests; were just a sampling of the vast display of original scientific experiments conducted by Miller Avenue’s K-2 graders as part of the annual science fair.

Shoreham-Wading River High School science students judged the work of the younger students using an evaluation rubric with criteria that included the originality of a student’s question, hypotheses, procedures, investigations, analysis and conclusion. The winners were kindergartner Neily Rogers (The Hollywood Hotel), first-grader Hunter Bernadino (Can you escape a black hole?) and second grader Brayden Stroh (Exploding Bags).

Thanks also to St. Joseph’s University students and Dr. Stadler for their scientific experiments that also contributed to another successful event.
