In just the second year since the Pelham Middle School STEAM Research Club formed, 12 students had outstanding showings at this year’s Tri-County Science Fair at White Plains High School.
Competing against students from more than 30 middle schools in the region, Leah Sherbansky won first place in the Health and Medicine category for her research on, “Prevention of Streptococcus Illnesses,” and was chosen as one of the eight top students as candidates to compete in the National Broadcom Science Competition in Washington, D.C. this coming fall. Additionally, Viren Maira placed third in Chemistry for his project, “How to Make Glow Sticks Glow Brighter?”
Also showcasing their individuals projects at the fair were Irene Basu, Sorany Campo, Matthew Doka, Jasmine Duffus, Vivian Guo, Princess Mansingh, Julia Meyerson, Elio Pietranico, Jonah Sherbansky, and Shreyas Singh.
The STEAM Research club meets after school with advisor Maria Buckley.
