Midwood Science sweeps Brooklyn College on Science Research Day

Posted on Sunday, May 11, 2014 by 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.

2014 ACT-SO: Midwood wins big

Posted on Friday, May 9, 2014 by for ACT-SO, Awards.

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 !

Raquel Hosein attends 3 day conference at Stanford University

Posted on Tuesday, May 6, 2014 by for Awards, Miscellaneous.

Midwood senior Raquel Hosein attended the she++ conference as a 2014 #include Fellow at Standford University in California April 3–5, 2014.

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.

Physics Photo Contest

Posted on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 by for Extra Credit.

For many years the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) High School Physics Photo Contest has provided teachers and students an opportunity to learn about the physics behind natural and contrived situations by creating visual and written illustrations of various physical concepts. Students compete in an international arena with more than 1,000 of their peers for recognition and prizes. The contest is open to high school students in grades 9–12. Entries are welcome every year between March 1 and May 15 for that year’s competition. Photos may be entered in one of two categories described below, and will be judged on the quality of the photo and the accuracy of the physics in the explanation that accompanies the photograph.

If you have a photo you would like to submit to this contest, please email it to me as soon as possible. I will give you advice on what to write for copy. The deadline for this competition is May 15, but if you give me your photo for the first time on this day you will not be allowed to enter. Please read the Student Rules before contacting me. You may already have a photo in your archives that could be used for this competition. Look to the past winning entries for inspiration.
