Boston students demonstrate knowledge in Science

The recent 61st Annual BPS Citywide Science Fair at Northeastern University showcased the science projects of more than 300 middle and high school students. The top 40 projects in the high school division will go on to compete in the Massachusetts State High School Science & Engineering Fair at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) May 3-5, while the top 40 projects in the middle school division will go on to compete in the statewide competition at Quinsigamond Community College in Worcester on June 2. The two highest scoring high school winners, Anartya Mandal of Brighton, a sophomore at Boston Latin School, and Tony Chau, a student at the Boston Asian Youth Essential Services GED program in Chinatown, will go on to compete in the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair in New Mexico, May 13-19. Pictured here, Sahairy Peguero of Hyde Park and Danette Pena of Jamaica Plain, both seniors at Madison Park Technical-Vocational High School, explain their experiments about auto body chemicals.
