Shoreham-Wading River High School Science Research 2 students have a real-world laboratory right outside the school’s doors where they spent time collecting mushrooms and mo​sses for their work with the Barcode Long Island project, a study of Long Island’s unique, dynamic natural environment. They also worked to take a sediment core in the pond for the sediment chemistry analysis project at the Brookhaven National Laboratory’s NSLS-II to identify any heavy or trace metals that may be present in the sediment of the pond due to the runoff from the surrounding area.
