Ames Scientists Achieve in Regional Competition

Students in science research classes at Massapequa High School’s Ames Campus not only participated in the 2022 Long Island Science Congress competition, but were awarded for their outstanding projects.

LISC is an adjudicated exhibit of science projects by students in Nassau and Suffolk county middle, junior high and senior high schools, sponsored by the Long Island section of the Science Teachers Association of New York State.

Student work was based upon independent experiments performed by students under the guidance of Ames research teacher, Carrie Kaplun. This year, 13 ninth grade research students were recognized at this year’s competition.

Finn C., Michael L. and Sofia M. earned high honors with the Lloyd K. Chanin Memorial Award, which includes a $50 prize. Madeline D., Mia G., Amanda K., Edward P., Shea R. and Delaney S. earned the Honors Award, and Ava C., Tyler L., Cassidy M. and Katja V. received the Achievement Award.
