Two Longwood Elementary School students earned top honors at the Brookhaven National Laboratory Elementary School Science Fair last month.
Ridge Elementary School second-grade student Alexis Hollingsworth received first place for her project, titled “Is artificial food dye harmful to the growth of living things.” The objective of the project was to find out if food dye affects the growth of living organisms.
In addition to Alexis’s first place win, West Middle Island Elementary first-grade student Ryan Romano earned honorable mention for his project, titled “The Green Monster in the Waters of Long Island.” Ryan’s project observed how lawn fertilizers affect the growth of algae in our local waterways.
More than 100 Suffolk County schools take part every year in BNL’s Elementary School Science Fair. Some 470 projects, created by over 500 Suffolk County children ranging from kindergarten to 6th grade, compete.
