Invitation to Science Symposium

The community is invited to learn about the wide range of research projects Rocky Point High School and Middle School students have been completing this year during the second annual Science Symposium, scheduled for Wednesday, June 3 at 6:30 p.m. in the Middle School Library.

The event will include several student talks and recognition of the accomplishments of this year’s science research students.

Among the 20 projects on display will be the work of Pooja Deshpande, Brittany Mastando, Samantha Napoli and Mary Noto, who recently presented at the Noyce Science Symposium at Dowling College. Their projects focused on the effects of UV radiation on bacterial growth, symbiotic relationships between clover and microbes, UV absorption by pigmented bacteria and food preferences in crabs.
