Presenting Science Research

Rocky Point High School 10th-graders Jade Pinkenburg and Kyle Markland were selected to showcase their original research projects during this year’s Junior Science and Humanities Symposium.

The JSHS promotes research and experimentation in the sciences, engineering and mathematics at the high school level. Both were selected as semifinalists at this year's JSHS after submitting research papers and were invited to present their work at York College this February.

Jade's research project was  "Can Magnetic Fields be used to Shield Astronauts from Cosmic Radiation?" and Kyle's project was "The Effect of Shielding Material on Cosmic Ray Interference."

This is the first time Rocky Point students have submitted to the contest.
