The Sachem science research department recently hosted its annual symposium at High School North in celebration of the tireless work displayed by the student-scientists throughout the school year. 

The symposium served as an opportunity to honor the science research students from grades 9- 12 for their continued dedication to science and their progressive research efforts. To begin the event, guest speakers Angelica Franqueiro and Daniel Waxman, seniors at Sachem High School North and East respectively, presented their research to an auditorium full of family and fellow research students. Next, Samantha Meadows, a Ph.D. candidate in neuroscience at Weill Cornell Medicine and a High School East alumnus, spoke about how Sachem shaped the beginning years of her academic experience, the importance of goal setting and how to effectively plan for the future.

“Science research is an important area of your academics because it allows you to fuel your own learning,” Meadows told the student-filled audience. “The power of your research is that you can do something that can change the world.” 

As the symposium concluded, 10 graduating seniors were recognized for their accomplishments in the science research program, and all attendees were welcomed to view posterboards of the students’ work on display in the gymnasium.
