Sachem Students Decode Long Island Biodiversity

Six Sachem High School North science research students making up two teams recently worked to expand their genetics knowledge through the Barcode Long Island program. 

The program, led by the American Museum for National History, Brookhaven National Laboratory and Stony Brook University, aims to enhance student understanding of the interdependence between humans and the natural environment. 

Each team of Sachem students developed a project to investigate biodiversity on Long Island and submitted a written proposal to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory for its annual symposium. Once accepted, the student-scientists took to the field to collect water quality data and biological specimens. Students then recently utilized the genetics lab at Stony Brook University to complete gel electrophoresis before sending the DNA samples out to be sequenced. Students worked alongside professional geneticists to extract and amplify DNA from almost 40 organisms. 

Through the Barcode Long Island program students gain an authentic science research experience harnessing the capabilities of genetics labs they would not otherwise have access to until college. Following the student research, each team will create a poster that will be presented to peers and professionals at the annual symposium held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s DNA Learning Center. 

Last year, a team of Sachem students discovered two organisms that have never been sequenced for DNA before. 

Sachem Teams Up for Technology

Technology transcended grade levels at Sachem High School North as students throughout the building explored numerous educational technologies during a collaboration between the library at High School North and the Sachem Public Library.

During the Sachem Public Library’s studio tour, the library at High School North bustled with students engaged in the latest technologies. High-tech devices offered were drones, mBots, Ozmo drawing tablets and a virtual reality headset simulator. Students interested in creative design and engineering could explore lower-tech options such as Strawbees and Legos.

“It was a really interesting experience,” student Joe Ennisi said as he waited on line to experience the VR headset. “These activities really make you think outside the box.” 

The introduction to the new technologies encouraged students to expand on curriculum concepts through tactile learning.

Stylist Workshop Shares Valuable Industry Insight

Tips and tricks were plentiful at a recent stylist workshop for cosmetology students in the career and technical education program at Sachem High School North. 

The student stylists gathered around as Nico Merritt and Joe Nati from Hattori Hanzo Shears demonstrated advanced haircutting techniques on Principal Patricia Trombetta. The professionals covered a plethora of salon topics, including approaches and techniques for achieving a variety of hairstyles and the importance of selecting the proper scissors for the desired cut. Students became better acquainted with popular tools of the trade, including shears, multipurpose shears and texturizers, and explored the benefits of different scissor materials. 

Throughout the hands-on workshop, Merritt emphasized the importance of not cutting hair on “autopilot” and actively advancing the application of their skills to become a better stylist. 

Creating Buzz at Long Island’s Brain Bee

Two Science Research students from Sachem High School North recently showed off their neuroscience skills at the Long Island Brain Bee, held at the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra University on Feb. 3.

The annual competition gives interested students a venue to explore multiple disciplines associated with the study of the brain and exposes them to career opportunities available in neurology, neurosurgery, psychology and neuroscience. Competing among 35 other high school students from Nassau and Suffolk counties, junior Amy DeLury placed second and freshman Nistha Boghra received a certificate of completion for her participation in the contest.   

The one-day competition is comprised of three components: a written test on brain facts, laboratory demonstrations on normal and pathological human brain and spinal cord specimens, and a test to identify the anatomical structures and functions of a real human brain. 

"I am impressed by the dedication displayed by Amy and Nistha,” Science Research teacher Gregg McGrath said. “Both students devoted significant time and energy to learning about the brain and nervous system prior to the competition. They were both great representatives of Sachem High School North."

The event concluded with a lunch, during which the students were able to converse with experts in brain biology on concepts and ideas covered in the competition.
