The Mini-Research Grant Award (MRGA) is an initiative of the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) that awards monetary grants to high school students for scientific research projects still in the proposal stage. Two projects by Midwood students were selected on Tuesday, January 25, 2022 — and soon thereafter NYIT sent us $600.
- Senior Lianhao Zheng received a grant of $300 for his proposal "How does a 9–12th grade high school students’ mindfulness affect their level of depression and sleep quality?" Lianhao’s work will be submitted to the AP Capstone program in May. This is the second time he has won this award.
- Juniors Angel Wu, Aaron Xu, and Jiaen Chen received a grant of $300 for their proposal "The effect of external factors on the perception and taste of food". The team will submit their work to the Terra NYC STEM Fair and other competitions in their senior year.
