Twelve LVCSD students competed in the Long Island Science and Engineering Fair on March 23 and sixth-grader Daniel Glavan won third place for his project, "The Effects of Golf Ball Dimple Pattern on Golf Ball Trajectories." Daniel and his fellow middle school scientists participated in the LISEF Broadcom-MASTERS competition.

Five high school students and seven middle school students attended from Locust Valley, each of whom presented projects that they spent incredible amounts of time and effort completing.  

Science research teacher Christopher Hoppner commended all of the students for their excellent projects. Kudos to high school students Jessica Bianco, Lisa Cheung, Nick Chisari, Nils Coffey and Beatrix Postley and middle school students Nikki Berritto, Alexis Cassano, Daniel Glavan, Zophie Lemaitre, Sabrina Raichoudhury, Gia Villella and Zachary Watson.

LISEF aims to identify and recognize secondary school students with the potential to become outstanding natural, physical and behavioral scientists, engineers or mathematicians. They also strive to promote a forum for these students to exhibit their projects.  Congratulations to Daniel and all of the LVCSD young scientists!
