During Spring Break, twelve Hackley students participated in the state’s largest science and engineering fairs. They did significantly well, with a school record of three students qualifying for the Regeneron International Science Fair held in Atlanta, GA in May, and one student qualifying for the International Genius Olympiad in June. Both fairs represent the world stage for science and engineering students to present their work.
On February 5, Hackley’s Independent Science Research students—seniors Daniel Cai, Dionne Chen, Joey Nadol, and Daniel Zhang—presented their science research projects at the Westchester Rockland Junior Science and Humanities Symposium, among more than 350 other projects from the region.
During his virtual visit on January 21 with Independent Science Research Program students, Dr. Ephraim Tsalik MD/PhD spoke about how his research has demonstrated the ability to utilize Machine Learning (ML) to analyze the imprint a bacteria or a virus has on the gene expression of your immune response to categorize what is causing your symptoms.
