Science Unplugged Visits High Schools:
-Lauren Ferlin – East Islip High School“The speakers of the program you presented in the Fall were very engaging and helped my students understand science topics…. My chemistry students absolutely loved meeting scientists in the field and they have been asking when more scientists can come over for a visit. Thank you so much for your time, my students and I really enjoyed it!!!”
-Leah Solomon – Central Islip Senior High School
“The presenters did an absolutely outstanding job. I was so impressed and they were really great about engaging the students. The students came up with some good questions and really were tuned into the talks. It was a win/win.”
