Congratulations to Hannah Lebovics and Ariana Schanzer(Grade 11) whose poster presentation took first place at the Northern New Jersey Junior Science and Humanities Symposium at the Rutgers University School of Engineering this week. Hannah and Ariana followed up on their summer work at Rutgers and their junior-year research elective with a presentation on Identification of the Cox19 Genome in the Duckweed species wolffia australiana.
Congratulations to Rachel Reichner and Ariana Schanzer who placed in Junkyard Challenge and to Zachary Flamholz and Jason Fischman who placed in Tower Building at this Sunday's BJE Science Olympiad.
Our entire contingent placed fourth in a field of twelve schools. Everyone loves to win, of course, but we are very pleased that this group for whom preparing for the Olympiad is not near the top of their list of extracurricular activities did so well in our second year of participation.
Last week, in a masterful combination of science and Torah, Moshe Lewy-Neuman presented a wonderful Chaburah Shiur on Halakhic issues involved with heart transplants to more than 100 students from all four grades.
