Three elementary school students from the Sachem Central School District thrived during the recent Brookhaven National Laboratory Elementary Science Fair, as they secured two first-place finishes and an award for honorable mention. 

Nokomis Elementary School fourth-grader Arianna Flores finished in first place for her experiment that examined how nanosilver found in common household products affects the growth of pond life. Merrimac Elementary School fifth-grade student Nicholas Prosa received first place for his experiment that determined the healthiest hand drying option, paper towels or hand dryers, and Audrey Prego, a third-grade student from Waverly Elementary School, was awarded honorable mention for her experiment on sleep.

To advance to the BNL Elementary Science Fair each student had to be awarded first place at their respective elementary school science fair.

Classroom Concepts Shine Through Art Activity

A complex collaboration of art and math recently challenged fifth-graders in Susan Kinsey’s art class at Waverly Avenue Elementary School as a special guest – the school’s principal – led an origami activity that reinforced multiple math vocabulary terms. 

Throughout the activity, John Ruggero guided students through a precise folding sequence that created a three-dimensional box out of six square sheets of paper. Along the way, he incorporated geometric terminology to identify each fold. The terms included edges, faces, vertices and different shapes such as isosceles triangles, right triangles, parallelograms and trapezoids. 

The collaborative activity allowed students to couple math curriculum concepts with the interesting art of origami. 

Waverly Goes Full STEAM Ahead With PARP

During the month of March, the Pick a Reading Partner program at Waverly Elementary School fueled student’s love for literacy as they engaged in a number of reading activities based on the Full STEAM Ahead theme.

As a culminating event, students rejoined their teachers and classmates from last school year to celebrate their continued literary strides. During the gathering, which was a first for the school, the groups had the opportunity to read a story together, reflect on the school year to date, revisit friends and share stories of the books they have read. 

PARP concluded on March 20 with an assembly program with popular children’s author Alicia Klepeis, where they asked questions and further explored their love for learning.
