The district is pleased to announce that a record number of Lynbrook High School seniors have been entered in the 2018 Regeneron Science Talent Search. The 24 science research students recently submitted their projects in the hopes of being among the top students in the nation who will be named one of the Top 300 Scholars. 

The Regeneron STS, formerly known as the Intel STS, is said to be the nation’s most prestigious science research competition for high school seniors. The organization will award $3.1 million dollars to top students and their schools and semifinalists will be announced on Jan. 9, 2018.

Working under the guidance of science research teachers David Shanker and Charles Vessalico, the students put in countless hours to develop their projects which ranged from chemistry to investigating mental health topics and diseases.

“The Lynbrook School District should be proud that we had 24 seniors submit their research reports this year; which is a record number,” said science research teacher David Shanker. “The accomplishment of these students is a highlight of academic excellence in the district.”
