Science Research Symposium on Tuesday, May 21st from 6:00-8:00 pm in the Middle School / High School Library. This evening is a wonderful opportunity for our students to share their original research with the school and local communities. I would like to invite you all to attend this wonderful event.  The evening will be structured a bit differently this year due to our involvement with the University at Albany Science Research Program. We will begin the evening with a keynote speaker followed by a ten-minute oral presentation from three of our seniors and one junior on their work for the past two to three years. This will be followed by an informal poster session where you will have the opportunity to speak with all of our students about their fascinating original research projects. Lite refreshments will be provided for the evening.
