Science rules

Future science researchers presented their science projects at the first ever Science Symposium at Fontbonne Hall Academy last month.

Natalie Correa, a member of the St. Francis Prep Science Research Class of 2015 and future Brown University student, presented the keynote address. Sophomores and budding scientists spent the past year investigating, researching, and studying various hypothesis and areas of scientific study to formulate specific objectives with a mentor. Their goal was to present their findings by the fall of their senior year, and topics included Comparisons of Medication, Surgery and the Ketogenic Diet in the Treatment of Epilepsy, the Effect of Breastfeeding on Children with Celiac Disease, and Benzodiazepines and Other Risk Factors for Alzheimer’s Disease.

The program is a special pet project at Fontbonne, said Principal Mary Ann Spicijaric.

“It is a true STEM program,” she said. “It is a project-based learning experience that challenges a high-school student to design a research objective and to produce an original finding after dedicating herself to it for three years.”

Standing O is dedicating a special huzza to the students.

Fontbonne Hall Academy [9901 Shore Rd. at 100th Street in Bay Ridge, (718) 748–2244].
