Science Discovery Fair

  • Discovery Fair

    The science research students of Massapequa High School, in cooperation with the Massapequa School District, host an annual Science Discovery Fair (usually the middle of March) for students in grades K-8The fair is open to individual or team projects (a maximum of 3 members per team.)

    Students need to plan and develop a project on a science topic of their choice. Students may look through sources such as books, magazines, television, the internet, and interviews to develop and test their hypothesis. Projects should include a problem statement, procedures, observations, data, conclusions, and bibliography. Each student or team displays and presents their project at the Discovery Fair. Judges evaluate the projects and present awards.

Science Research Program

  • The Science Research Program begins with Introduction to Research at Berner for students in 8th Grade. Research I and Laboratory Skills for Research are the courses for students in the first year of high school. The research courses continue at the Main Campus, leading to the International Prep class for seniors.  

    If you have a strong interest in science, enjoy problem-solving and like science competitions, such as the Science Discovery Fair, you may be interested in the Science Research Program. Information about the program, application process, and the forms can be found on our PowerSchool Learning class titled Science Research Applicants. All applications must be completed online.

    Students are encouraged to join the Science Olympiad and the Science Research Club at the Main Campus.
