Midwood Science Research students filled the Pfizer Auditorium at the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering on April 3 for the 2014 Brooklyn Frontiers in Science Public Lecture. This year Professor Jacqueline K. Barton presented a lecture on Signaling through DNA. The audience listened carefully as she educated them about the capabilities of DNA and the various research being conducted.
After Professor Barton finished presenting the lecture, many Midwood students stayed to ask questions to satisfy their curiosity since they were eager to find out more about the different research being acquired in this field. It was an enriching experience for students to broaden their scientific knowledge.

Dr. Sophia Suarez in the Physics Department at Brooklyn College will be conducting a two-day workshop for high school students on Electrochemical Devices: Research, Applications, and Energy on Tuesday, July 1 and Wednesday, July 2, 2014. At the workshop, you will learn how to build supercapacitors, fuel cells, and batteries. This workshop is open to current sophomores and juniors and graduating seniors. Contact any one of the research teachers if you would like to join Dr. Suarez and her team. Lunch will be provided both days. Extra credit cannot be awarded since this event takes place outside of the regular school year.
Seniors and Juniors. I sent you all an email today about exit meetings, the World Science Festival, and other stuff. If you did not receive it check your spam folder. Everyone should have my name stored in their contacts/address book to prevent this kind of thing. If you still cannot find a message from me, please send me an email stating this. Not all email services are kind to email blasts. For your reading enjoyment, here are the email messages as text files. Enjoy!
We are Midwood Science Research. Don’t call us the "Intel" class. We participate in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) events throughout the year. The Intel Science Talent Search is just one of many. Don’t call us the "Intel" class. We are much, much more than that. We are Midwood Science Research.

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.
The New York City Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) is a youth program under the administrative aegis of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). ACT-SO is an enrichment program designed to encourage high academic and cultural achievement among under-served minority high school students. Near the end of every academic year, ACT-SO students participate in an "Olympics of the Mind".
On Monday, May 5, 2014 at St. Francis College, Midwood received 7 gold medals, 2 silver medals, 2 bronze medals, and 2 ambassador awards — more than any prior year. We also entered in more categories than ever before — the sciences (of course), visual arts, performing arts, and humanities. (The only category we missed was business.) All medalists receive an honoraria from a New York City branch of the NAACP (Brooklyn, Mid-Manhattan, or Williamsbridge). Gold medalists go on to compete in the National ACT-SO in Las Vegas July 19–23, 2014.
If you think so … Then ACT-SO !

The always dynamic President of ACT-SO,
she++ strives to involve high school students in the computer science field. This year, she++ selected 30 aspiring students from across the nation to become #include Fellows and attend the #include Summit for the #include Fellowship Program. They were selected based on their application, which included demonstrating an outreach project.
Raquel worked with students at Brooklyn College Community Partnership to build a hydroponics farm at the Brooklyn College location. In doing so, Raquel wanted to kick start the science initiative at BCCP. Raquel would like to create an interdisciplinary approach to the sciences, using interior design alongside engineers to build the farm, as BCCP is striving to help high school students become motivated about the things they are learning.
