West Hempstead students present at Long Island Science Congress


A number of students in grades seven to 12 from West Hempstead Middle School and High School recently presented their science research projects at this year’s Long Island Science Congress competition. The event was held at Saint Anthony’s High School in South Huntington on April 17 and 18.

Students in both the junior and senior divisions presented their work, and each was judged a minimum of three times. Science teachers Mary Evans, Virginia Pusateri, Salvatore Trupia and James Ypsilantis accompanied the students and also served as judges for other scholars presenting at the competition. The West Hempstead School District congratulated students that took part in the event.
