Eastchester High School students enrolled in the Advanced Science Research Program presented their work to the community on June 4 during the Advanced Science Research Symposium.
The ASR program allows students to choose a topic of their interest and then become experts through research. The students learn the vocabulary associated with the project, search for information, study current research and contact a mentor as they prepare to present their findings during competitions.
Some of the projects this year included: The Relationship between the Risk of Mental Illness, Familial Relationship, and Perfection in High-Achieving High School Students; A Comprehensive Comparison of Galaxy Morphology and Star Formation; The Effect of Calcium on the Self-Healing Properties of Concrete; Survival Time Analysis Based on Size: Canines with Cancer.
42 freshman will join the program next year and will work with ASR Coordinator Christian Gorycki.
