  • 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.

    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!"
