An original research project created by Babylon High School seniors Emily Brown, Sara Mikovic and Meredith Wardell has advanced to the second round of the Intel-level Long Island Science and Engineering Fair, to be held this March.

The students’ project, “The effect of apricot kernels, a proven natural pesticide, on the growth of Phaseolus vulgarius & Cynodon dactylon,” competed in the elite competition against more than 400 other student projects.

Based on their performance at the March 13 LISEF, the students’ project could advance to the Intel Science and Engineering Fair in April. In addition, seniors Jed Dale and Max Pitagno also entered their project, “The bioremediation of 1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane (R-134a) by Scendesmus sp. as facilitated by Titanium Dioxide & activated charcoal.” This was Babylon’s first time competing at this level of LISEF.

Terrific! BHS has advanced in Science Research at such lightening speed. Students do not get this motivated or advance this quickly without a world-class teacher. Their teacher, Ms. Claire Birone has done an outstanding job. Regardless of the ultimate outcome, the Babylon School District's young scientists have made us shine!
