Congratulations to Sarah Herman, a twelfth-grader at the Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls, upon winning first place in the Behavioral and Social Science category of the Junior Science and Humanities Symposium, Long Island Division. She is now a finalist for the National Symposium. Congratulations also to senior Ilana Radinsky, who is a semi-finalist. Many thanks go to SKA adviser Dr. David Friedman for his help and encouragement.
Designed to challenge and engage students in grades 9–12 in science, technology, engineering, or math, the JSH Symposium, held this year on Sunday, February 8, offers students the opportunities for scholarships and peer recognition. Both Sarah and Ilana had to submit research papers, which were evaluated by college faculty and practicing scientists. The twelfth-graders were then selected to present the results of their original research before a panel of judges and an audience of students like themselves.
SKA is so very proud of the students’ accomplishments.
