Midwood sweeps Brooklyn College Science Day for the third year in a row

Posted on Friday, May 6, 2016 by for Awards, Brooklyn College.

Every year in May, the science students at Brooklyn College get together for a friendly poster competition amongst themselves. Every year they also ask high school students from Brooklyn to join them. Projects are separated by grade level (Graduate, Undergraduate, High School). For the third year in a row, Midwood Science has taken every one of the awards at the high school level. We even had two First Place winners this year — Kai Saunders (a senior) and Noor Asif (a junior). Award winning students were given prizes including Barnes and Noble gift cards, USB flash drives, portable phone chargers, and stainless steel water bottles. Everyone received a free pen, a free lunch, and a nice break from from classes during a stressful week of Advanced Placement Exams.
