Science Projects Headed To International Fairs

Friday, 29 March 2013 00:00

Manhasset High School juniors Pat Fahey and Mike Kusernick have made the finals of the International Sustainable World Engineering, Energy & Environment Project Olympiad (ISWEEP) with their project that explores a new bioassay technique for the detection of heavy metals in polluted waters.  Also attending ISWEEP will be juniors Bryan Herbert, Aaron Tabibzadeh and Stephen Tranchina, whose project is a two-year study that sought to optimize Chlorella (a green algae) as a potential biodiesel fuel of the not-too-distant future. The two groups will be competing in Houston, Texas in early May.

In other competitions, junior Albert Kim will be presenting his research on the environmental toxin 4 nonophenoly at the International Science and Engineering Fair. Albert was a winner of the Long Island Regional Fair in the environmental category.  And, winning the environmental management category at the LISEF Fair were juniors Arthur Wang, Randy Tung and Archie Kong.  Their project explored the possible health hazards of nanoparticles. These particles are growing in use and little has been done to explore their potentially dangerous effects.

The program begins in April and runs until the first week of June. Each session is 90 minutes long and is being held on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the elementary schools and secondary school. Group size is limited to keep a high teacher to student ratio. Manhasset private tutoring firm Tutor Doctor is partnering with Manhasset SEPTA to provide all the staff and oversee the program.
