On Saturday, June 2, PHS Science Teacher Ms. Erum Hadi took 21 Peekskill Science Research program (PSR) students to the Somers High School Sophomore Science Fair. The students worked hard all year to study a scientific topic in-depth, and for the past month, they prepared posters on their research topics, rehearsing their presentations repeatedly in preparation for the fair.

The Peekskill team was able to bring home 5 awards from the event! This is the first year that a Peekskill student has placed first and that the PSR team has won multiple awards at the fair.

Congratulations to Ms. Hadi, our participants and to the following winners:

Milagros Morales : 1st Place (Medicine and Health) – Research on HETE’s role in atheroscelorosis
