Two Lynbrook High School seniors received honorable mention at the Long Island Science and Engineering Fair, held at the Cradle of Aviation Museum.
The awards went to Maggie Rouder for her project "The Correlation of Nutritional Awareness and Dietary Development of Young Children" and Laura Zweifler for her project "Mapping of Phosho 1 During Tooth Development, In Vitro and In Vivo."
In other news, senior Harrison Ezratty’s research paper, entitled "Thermoelectricity and Compost: An Alternative Energy for the Future," was accepted for presentation at the Junior Science and Humanities Symposium held at Stony Brook University.
At the symposium, individual students competed for scholarships and recognition by presenting the results of their original research efforts before a panel of judges and an audience of their peers.
All three students developed their projects in the Lynbrook High School Science Research Program under the direction of teacher David Shanker.
