Midwood Science sweeps Brooklyn College on Science Research Day
Posted on Sunday, May 11, 2014 by Elert for Awards, Brooklyn College.
No, we didn’t clean the campus. Brooklyn College has enough paid professionals to do that without our help.
Brooklyn College Science Research Day is the annual, campus-wide science fair held at the end of the spring semester. Posters are presented by Brooklyn College undergraduate and graduate students — and also by students from partner high schools in the borough. More than one hundred posters were exhibited in the Brooklyn College Student Center on Friday, May 9, 2014. The other meaning of "sweep" is to win every award in a contest. Every award in the High School Division at Brooklyn College Research Day was won by a Midwood Science student in 2014 — an unprecedented accomplishment.

Brooklyn College Science Research Day
Posted on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 by Elert for Brooklyn College, Seniors.
Brooklyn College will be holding their Science Research Day on Friday, May 11 from 9:30 to 1:30. They are willing to take 5 projects (team or individual) from Midwood to compete in the high school division. (They also have a graduate and an undergraduate division.) This event is run basically the same as St. Joe’s and NYCSEF. Students who participate will be excused from class as if it was a field trip. If I remember correctly, they offer certificates and small gifts ranging in value from $5-20 as prizes. They also feed you a pretty nice lunch at the end.
Let me know if you are interested. Abstracts need to be submitted by Friday. And yes, extra credit will be awarded to those who participate.

Brooklyn College Science Research Day
Posted on Friday, April 23, 2010 by Elert for Brooklyn College, Extra Credit, Juniors, Seniors.
Brooklyn College will be hosting its annual Science Research Day on Friday, May 14, 2010. Science students at all levels — graduate, undergraduate, and high school — will compete. The competition consists of a poster presentation that is much like NYCSEF with around 100 total participants. All seniors — especially those who worked at Brooklyn College — should consider entering. Juniors may also enter if their project is far enough along. All that you need to prepare for the competition is a poster. Extra credit will of course be awarded. Registration must be completed by Friday, April 30, 2010. There is no website for this competition, so contact me if you have any questions.
