Eight students from the White Plains High School Science Research Program presented their research at the Westchester-Rockland Junior Science & Humanities Symposium last Saturday at John Jay High School in Cross River. Three of the students won awards at the competition: DiAnna Brice placed third in her category of competitive posters; and in their categories of competitive speakers, Merlyn George placed fifth and Olivia Bauer placed third.
Olivia will move on to the State competitive in Albany in March, where she will present her research: “The Effects of Paternal Birth Weight and Infant Birth Order on Infant Birth Weight.”
The Science Research Program is taught by Kimberly Fleming. Science Coordinator for the school district is Margaret Doty.
