SMART Team presents at symposium

Posted on Wednesday, June 18, 2014 by for Miscellaneous.

Midwood High School’s SMART Team worked hard over the year to prepare for their symposium at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School in the Riverdale section of the Bronx on May 18, 2014. (SMART stands for Students Modeling a Research Topic.) The Midwood team modeled the Streptococcal M protein for their presentation. Dr. Whitney Macdonald, a Research Associate in the Laboratory of Bacterial Pathogenesis at The Rockefeller University, helped the team research and model the protein. Ms. Ross was the supervising teacher at Midwood. Seven other high schools also participated in the symposium. Midwood’s presentation was exceptionally unique, with personally made drawings to accompany a storyline that would help explain the abilities of the M protein.
