More than 100 students from Rye Neck Middle School participated in the annual Science and Technology Fair at the school on March 23, and earned the opportunity to represent the district at a regional competition.

For their school’s science fair, the students conducted research in one of nine categories, tested their hypotheses and presented their findings before several teams of judges.

“We are proud to announce that 20 projects created by 27 Rye Neck Middle School students, who earned gold or silver medals, will represent the district at the Tri-County Science and Technology Fair at White Plains High School on April 22,” Principal Eric Lutinski said.

Lutinski added that this year’s student participation had almost doubled since last year. Teachers Leah Englander, Alison Reynolds, Lauren Zeoli, along with members of the Rye Neck Middle School science department, organized the science fair.
