The Valley Stream Central High School District held its annual Science Symposium on May 2 at North High School, featuring work from science research students at Central, North and South High Schools. 

The event kicked off with welcoming remarks from North’s Science Department Chairperson John Pandolfi and Principal Rachel Green. A keynote address was presented by Nicole Dipaoli, an alumni of the district and Registered Dietician with a Bachelor of Science degree in Integrative Neuroscience. Senior presentations followed, and guests had opportunities to view a poster gallery featuring projects from each school. 

A range of topics were featured through students’ research and reports. Among them were themes related to medicine, technology, health, the environment, sociology and biology, among many others. 

Senior High School Science Research is a three-year program in which students participate in class every other day and biweekly one-on-one meetings with their teachers. They deeply research high-level topics that interest them and work among scientists in professional environments through mentorships and internships.
