Congratulations to two MacArthur science research teams for their outstanding performance in the New York State Chemagination, an annual science competition held by the NY Chapter of the American Chemical Society. The competition challenges students to write an article that predicts scientific advancements 25 years into the future and produce and present a scientific poster outlining their research. Entrants must be able to discuss prior and present technology that will allow their project to be feasible in the future. The team of Michael Cassano, Jack Maurer, and Zachary Lyons took second place in the medical category, with a project related to the medicinal use of bee venoms. Matthew LaSusa, Natalia Pszeniczny, and Grace Ryan, with a project related to nano-coatings on fishing lines, finished in FIRST PLACE in the environmental category and advanced to the Mid-Atlantic Regional competition.
