Several BH-BL students earned awards this past weekend at the 25th Annual Greater Capital Region Science and Engineering Fair.
Congratulations to Gwenda Law who earned the American Society for Microbiology Award, Ben Schiher who earned the U.S. Metric Association Award, Dan Sinopoli who earned the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration "Taking the Pulse of the Planet" Award and Luke LeBel who earned the U.S. Navy Award, the American Meteorological Society Award and the Stockholm Water Federation Award.
Additionally, Luke now qualifies to compete in the State Water Federation Competition. Good luck!
More than 150 area middle and high school students from more than 20 regional schools participated in the daylong event held on Saturday, March 21 at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute campus in the Walker Laboratory building.
Working alone or in teams of up to three, students showcased their research in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Students were encouraged to focus on original research by working with mentors and/or teachers from the scientific community within the greater Capital Region. Students used storyboards to present their research to a panel of judges comprised of scientists and engineers.
