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.
