YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. – Sixth-graders at Lakeland Copper Beech Middle School in Yorktown Heights recently presented their original science research projects.
The third annual "Sixth Grade Student Science Showcase" was conducted during two nights in two filled classrooms at the school.
Students, who worked individually or in pairs, explored a variety of topics, including biology, chemistry, energy, kitchen chemistry, medicine, physics and zoology.
“They chose different experiments to perform, gathered materials, analyzed data, graphed results and reached conclusions through research to help better understand the world around us,” Judy Toledano, a science teacher at Lakeland Copper Beech Middle School, said in a press release. “The students themselves learned the importance of sharing scientific research with their peers and the nervous excitement of telling others about their discoveries. Science students of today become the great scientists of tomorrow. What a wonderful future we have to loo forward to and LCBMS is helping to pave the way.”
