New York State Science Congress Finalists 2018 - view list
The STANYS New York State Science Congress was established in 1950 as a means to stimulate interest and proficiency in the sciences. Students with outstanding projects are selected from Regional Science Fairs in STANYS Sections across the State to participate in the state level event, the NYS Science Congress. The 2018 NYS Science Congress event was held on June 2nd at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
The students presented their research orally to judges, community observers, and other students in a lecture format. They were judged on the quality of their work, as revealed by their written and oral presentations. Recognition was earned as Highest Honors, High Honors, Honors, and Honorable Mention.
The state competition is open to grades 6-12 and is conducted in a friendly atmosphere and is part of a congenial weekend in which the participants have an opportunity to meet and socialize with other teenagers of similar interests.
We would like to recognize and thank Susan M. Sullivan, Director, and Melanie Koch-Benham, Co-Director, for their hours of work and the University of Buffalo for making this event a reality for NYS students.
