CONGRATULATIONS TO THREE OF OUR SCIENCE STUDENTS FOR COMPETING AT THE LONG ISLAND SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING FAIR
What is LISEF? The Charles Duggan Long Island Science and Engineering Fair (LISEF) is a competition for very advanced high school projects. Students present their projects to professionals in their subject areas from universities, scientific universities and different professionals in the field. This event will have two rounds which take two days to complete. On the first day, students must present their projects to three judges. Students are placed into different categories and will aim to win a spot to advance to day two. At least twenty-five percent in each category are selected to go to round two. First place finalists from round two advance to the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF).
This year, we had three students participate in LISEF - Andrew Bacotti, Kenneth Chan and David Wendt. On February 6th these three students presented their projects at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Westbury.
Andrew Bacotti's project was on "The impact of Prior Systemic Therapy on Lymphocytic Infiltration in Surgically Reseected Breast Cancer Brain Metastases." Kenneth Chan's project was on "A New Method Enabling an Old Threory: Reduction of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning in PEM Hydrogen Fuel Cells Enabling the Use of Impure Hydrogen Sources." David Wendt's project was on "Modeling Negative Thermal Expansion in ScF3".
We congratulate Andrew Bacotti, Kenneth Chan and David Went for their dedication, focus and passion for science. Special congratulations goes out to both Andrew Bacotti and David Wendt as they will advance to round two of the LISEF competition on March 7th.
