SEED Celebrates Science – by Bob Draffin
On April 18, the BBP SEED Foundation sponsored their third annual all-district Celebration of Science Night. BBP SEED is our community’s education foundation that is dedicated to supporting academics through providing excellent educational experiences for our students. The acronym SEED itself stands for Student Educational Enrichment and Development.
This year’s event featured the 5th Grade students from each of the three elementary schools along with the sixth grade science research students displaying their science projects for everyone in the community to see. Also exhibited were all of the District’s Brookhaven National Lab winning science projects. In addition to all these great exhibits, the middle and high school science research students, robotics students and science Olympians provided demonstrations and displays of their hard work to dazzle the crowd.
The evening was topped off with an exciting “Marvels of Motion” show performed by Mad Science of Long Island. The show thrilled the packed bleachers of both students and parents alike with the highlight being the “Rocket Car”.
SEED would like to thank all the teachers, administrators and parents for making the evening such a success. Most of all, a very special thank you goes out to all the extremely talented young scientists who shared their talents making this year’s Celebration of Science Night the best one yet.
First place winners were:
-Annelise Schreiber, a 6th grader from James Wilson Young
-Liam Denison, a 5th grader from Blue Point
-Sean Nolan, a 5th grader from Academy
-Emily Denton, a 5th grader from Sylvan
