  • Superintendent's Rewind - April 4, 2019 - North Students Share Knowledge at Science Fair

    Posted by Martin Cox on 4/9/2020

    During the School Closing due to the COVID-19 Health Crisis, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Martin D. Cox will seek to keep spirits high across the Clarkstown Central School District with his Superintendent's Rewind, a celebration of accomplishments by school community members in the past.

     

    April 4, 2019

    Twenty displays and experiments were available for visitors to read and see one year ago at the North High School Science Fair.

    The students were dispersed, in classrooms and hallways, while informing their guests about the research they conducted and the results they found. The topics included, but were not limited to, the following:

    **Fingerprint Fun

    **Shiny Pennies

    **Rotational Motion

    **Elephant Toothpaste

    **Formation of Crystals

    **Surface Tension Demonstration

    **Density Demo

    **Sugar Reaction

    **Hovercraft and Friction

    "The Science Fair is an entirely student-run event, geared towards fanning the flame of scientific curiousity in elementary and middle school students," said Dennis Covert, a Physics and Astronomy Teacher at North High School.

    During the fair, visitors listened to students present information, and at many stations, model an experiment as well.

    "The passion demonstrated by the North students was every bit as impressive as their understanding of the science itself," added Mr. Covert. "Roughly 200 community members were treated to a fun and instructional night!"

  • Superintendent's Rewind - March 18, 2019 - West Nyack Elementary Science Expo

    Posted by Martin Cox on 3/26/2020

    During the School Closing due to the COVID-19 Health Crisis, Superintendent Dr. Martin D. Cox will seek to keep spirits high across the Clarkstown Central School District with his Superintendent's Rewind, a celebration of accomplishments by school community members in the past.

     

    March 18, 2019

    Parents and students packed the cafetorium on March 18, 2019 for the West Nyack Elementary Science Expo.

    Walking in the aisles between rows of tables, visitors listened to the students present the results of numerous experiments they had recently completed. In addition to their oral presentations, students provided parents further insight while referencing the pictures and artifacts connected to their poster boards.  The experiments were connected to the following catergories: Chemical Science; Earth; Electricity; Life; and Physics.

    While visiting with students, I learned the results of their experiments: Pop Rocks Expander; Gummy Bear Science; The Fastest Egg; Which Solution Prevents Apples from Browning?;Geodes; The Race - Salt vs. Pepper.

    The Science Expo Committee included Maria Cavaliere, Sara Fine, Kristin Hanley, Elyse Hausner, Alana Murphy, Laura Pestone, and Melissa Tsironis.

    West Nyack Elementary Principal Annie Streiff commented, "I am so proud of you for pursuing your intellectual curiousity, and for setting the example for all of your fellow students by creating your projects for the Second Annual WNES Science Expo.  Thank you for all of your hard work, and thank you to all of the grown-ups who helped you along the way to make your exhibits interesting, fun, and scientifically specially - especially moms and dads. Most especially, thank you to all the WNES grown-ups who made this event possible!"
