Nine Grand Avenue students participated in the Inaugural South Asian American Women's Alliance Middle School Science Fair.
Seven of those students also placed in the top four, either as individuals or as part of a team.
In the Biological Science category, Salvatore LoBrutto placed first and Tristan Bissoondial placed second. In addition, the teams of Daniel Lin and Joseph Litman, and Hallie Gillison and Temidire Oladeji received honorable mention, placing fourth.
Three students then competed at the Tri-County Science and Technology Fair. At the competition, Salvatore LoBrutto, Jr placed third in the category of Biology and Daniel Lin and Joseph Litman together placed thirrd in the Environmental Sciences category. Salvatore’s research project title was, “The effect of nitrogen-fixing bacteria vs. fertilizer on the growth of pea plants”.
Lin and Litman’s title was, “How does the integration of multiple variants of non-invasive vegetation into a scaled model of a hill compare to manmade control systems?”
Scoring within the top 10 percent of all his competitors, Salvatore was also nominated to compete in the prestigious national Broadcom MASTERS competition.
Broadcom MASTERS® is the nation's premier Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) competition for middle school students.
