Two students from Grand Avenue Middle School were selected to participate in the New York State Science Congress competition. 

Tyler Bissoondial and Timothy Langone will travel to SUNY Buffalo on June 2 to present their research.

Bissoondial’s project is “MicroRNA-156 regulates gametophyte to sporophyte development and sensitivity to salinity in Ceratopteris richardii.” Langone’s project is “Can seed germination release inhibitory signals prevent the development of seeds in close proximity?”  

Both projects were completed under the guidance of their research teacher, Tami Cruz
In order to be selected to compete at the state competition, students must be within the top 1 percent of their category at the regional Long Island Science Congress.
