Seven SWR High School students in the Women in Science and Engineering course, along with science teacher Lori Racaniello, recently participated in the WISE Capstone Event at Stony Brook University. The event showcased the students’ work on their research with Stony Brook mentors throughout the school year. They presented posters at the event and spoke about their learning experiences and their research.

The students were presented with certificates of recognition for their participation in the WISE programs: Julia Petreczky for Applied Mathematics and Statistics; Jackie Holden, Elle Schepis, Eilis Casey for Computer Science and Python coding; Sofia Stirpe, Caroline McDowell, Mika Misawa, Torre Ann Parrinello and Chelsea McCleary for Biomedical Engineering. (Torre Ann and Chelsea were not in attendance, but recognized for their work).

Dr. David L. Ferguson, Chair of SBU’s Department of Technology and Society was the keynote speaker and the students had the opportunity to interact with many other groups from schools on Long Island to learn about their research experiences.
