Six students from Syosset High School won first place at the Long Island Science and Engineering Fair (LISEF), qualifying them to compete at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair to be held in Los Angeles, California in May.
Students Rahul and Sahil Chaudry captured first place in the biochemistry and translational medicine category, Dahyun “Elle” Park and Jordan Sanford took first place on the energy category, Rushabh Meta took first in physics and astronomy, and Mohamed El-Abtah won first place in the biomedical and health sciences grouping. These projects are four of only 20 from the LISEF competition that earned this distinction.
“ISEF is the premier time for high school students to network with other young scientists and solve problems,” said Veronica Ade, the district’s research facilitator. “These six students emulate exactly what the Syosset High School research program is about: perseverance and dedication to scientific inquiry.”
