Lawrence High School
Announcements for Friday, March 15, 2019
Congratulations to Lawrence High School Senior Yehoshua Auerbach and Junior Bhawan Sandhu on each winning third place at the Long Island Science and Engineering Fair held yesterday at the Crest Hollow Country Club. Yehoshua produced a biosensor that can quickly and easily diagnose diseases such as Zika; and Bhawan created a cost effective membrane for a hydrogen fuel cell.
Also congratulations to Senior Kristen Dookie on making the top 25% of the fair for her work on saving terrapin turtles, an endangered species that lives on the east coast; to Senior Syed Bukhari, on her research of 3-D scaffolds for growing and testing cancer cells; and to John Chen and Zaiff Khan for creating a synthetic scaffold that can turn dental pulp stem cells into nerve cells. We are proud of all our Lawrence research scientists. Congratulations!
Congratulations to John Loughlin, who this past weekend competed at the N.Y. State H.S. Bowling Championships. John’s score every game was counted towards the Nassau County All-Stars team aggregate score. In the 5th game of the tournament, John bowled a team high 231. John’s consistency and spare making, helped lead the Nassau team to a 4th place finish- the highest Nassau has finished in years. Way to go John! You made Lawrence proud!!
