Elmont Memorial Students Present Work at Symposium

On Feb. 9, two Elmont Memorial High School Science Research students Keilia Hooke and Maxline Delorme were invited to present their work at the regional Junior Sciences and Humanities Symposium (JSHS).

The students were selected to present based upon their outstanding scientific research papers. Hooke and her team investigated novel bioplastics, while Delorme investigated a novel gene which improves wound healing.

Hooke and Delorme presented their work to a panel of scientific judges at York College. Prior to the presentations, attendees were treated to a keynote speech from the college president Dr. Berenecea Johnson Eanes.

The winners of the regional JSHS will be announced early in March and will represent Long Island at the National JSHS to be held in Norfolk, Va.
