With projects ranging from erosion and static energy to displays of electronic brains, young scientists at Deer Park’s John F. Kennedy Intermediate School showcased their research at the annual school science fair.

This year’s winners included third-graders Sidney Dumaresq (first place), Joseph Reina (second place) and Malak Oztimurlenk (third place); fourth-graders Nicola Cespe (first), Valentina Plaza (second) and Taylor Gabel (third place); and fifth-graders Colin Taylor (first), Sabrina Chawdhury (second) and Za’Riah Mowatt (third).

The first- and second-place winners for each grade will move on to participate alongside students from other Suffolk County schools in the Brookhaven National Laboratory Elementary School Science Fair on May 5.

“Our winners displayed projects that were creative and informative, the result of extensive planning, experimentation and understanding, and I am very proud of their achievement,” said science lab coordinator Joyce Carmen. “Keep up the great work, future scientists!”
