We thank them for their efforts in sharing these important messages with our greater community.

Math and Science Scholars Attend SBU Lecture

Shoreham-Wading River High School science and math students attended a special lecture at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics. Dr. Álvaro de Rújula, one of the world’s leading theoretical physicists from CERN, the European Center for Nuclear Research, presented “Creativity in the Arts and Sciences” and spoke about his work at CERN.

The students also took part in a discussion of the artwork in The Simons Center Gallery. Curator Lorraine Walsh and mathematician Dr. Moira Chas, who is one of the featured artists, spoke to the students. The students saw a bit of the Stony Brook campus before returning to the high school. They were accompanied on the trip by math teachers Mrs. Ellen Fraser and Mrs. Anne Marie Tarulli and physics teacher Mrs. Jennifer Zito.

Honors Chemistry Students Share Enrichment Projects

Honors Chemistry Students Share Enrichment Projects thumbnail228871
Did you know that ancient Greek philosopher Democritus is mostly remembered for his formulation of an atomic theory of the universe? Or that Sir James Chadwick was awarded the 1935 Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of the neutron in 1932? Students in Lauren Ocker’s Honors Chemistry class certainly do and had some fun with their enrichment projects culminating right before Halloween.

Each student created a tombstone of a dead chemist. The chemist’s scientific contributions and their life stories are then presented, where some students even “become” their chemist.

“Most of these scientists will be discussed throughout the year, and it is a great way to connect current concepts and show how they are built upon by the discoveries of many that have come before,” Ms. Ocker said.

The project also allows students to do some research and find that many of these scientists have worked together, further fostering the idea of collaboration. Learning in class about the historical background of some of the chemistry discoveries allows them also to make connections to what they have previously discussed in history class as well.

The tombstones will stay on display in the classroom throughout most of the year so the students can collectively refer to these projects and take ownership of the learning they did earlier in the year.

Shoreham-Wading River High School junior JiSeung Moon took her love of artistic creation to another level when she submitted an original digital painting to the Leonard Bus Sales Inc.’s “A Day in the Life of a School Bus” 2022-23 art competition. Encouraged by art teacher Mr. Jason Andria, JiSeung provided a birds-eye view of school transportation through her creative and critical lens in the contest that works to inspire and recognize young artists in high schools across New York State.
