Junior Science and Humanities Symposium

The Public Schools of the Tarrytowns recognizes eight Science Research students who participated on Jan. 31 in the Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS). The event is open to high school seniors and this year was held via ZOOM. The students explained their research using PowerPoint presentations.

We congratulate:

  • Emma Correia: Second place with her project entitled, "Predicting burnout in siblings: The conjoint roles of parenting styles and birth order."
  • Sydney Schulz: Fourth place with her project, "The effect of racial bias on the cross race effect" 
  • Maya Weitzen: First place with her project titled, "High throughput discovery and validation of cancer testis antigen and neoantigen HLA-presented peptides in non-small cell lung carcinomas."
  • Arya Glenn: First place with her project titled, "Identification of apoE4 structure stabilizers through DOCK6 and molecular dynamics simulations."

Sydney, Maya and Arya will advance to the upstate JSHS competition in March.  We wish them luck!

Science research teachers Michele Zielinski and David Erenberg wish to thank everyone who provided feedback to the students and helped them develop into the presenters they are today.
