Farmingdale State Hosts 2006 Long Island Science Congresses
On Wednesday, April 5, and Thursday, April 6, Farmingdale State University of New York will host the 2006 Long Island Science Congresses (LISC). LISC is one of the region's premier science competitions. The Senior High Congress will be held on April 5 for science exhibits submitted by high school students. The Junior High Congress will be held on April 6 for exhibits submitted by middle school students. The exhibits will be on view from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Nold Hall Gymnasium at Farmingdale State. The event is free and open to the public and all science enthusiasts are invited.
LISC is an adjudicated exhibit of science projects by students from Nassau and Suffolk County middle, junior and senior high schools, sponsored by the Long Island Sections of the Science Teachers Association of New York State (STANYS). Since its inception in 1950, there have been over 85 committee members consisting of teachers, professors, and doctors.
The goal of the LISC is for students to share scientific experiences with others as well as earn awards and recognition for scientific presentations. Additionally, Senior Division entrants will have an opportunity for selection to represent Long Island at the STANYS New York State Science Congress.
