Two students from Miller Avenue School have been making the rounds
accepting congratulations for being named Brookhaven National Laboratory
Science Fair winners. Kindergarten student Connor Nugent and second
grader Zachary Lister who won in the kindergarten grade level and the
second grade level competitions for their respective projects, were
honored by the Board of Education as well as by Legislator Sarah Anker.
At the BOE meeting, they both described their projects, Connor’s about
the strength of spaghetti and Zachary’s about the slippiest socks. Both
young scientists were presented with plaques from the board members that
will be hung in the school and a Proclamation with the Suffolk County
seal from Leg. Anker.
