On Thursday, April 30th, students Joseph DiGiovanni, Gretel Huber, Jeremy Forman, Tyler Meyer, Zachary Slansky, Michael Baranowski, Aidan Luebker, Daniel Kulesa, Emily Murphy, Megan Brady-Fuchsman, Connor Rankel, Anne Rodriguez, and Ryan Wittleder represented Henry L. Stimson Middle School at the Long Island STEM Hub Competition at the Cradle of Aviation Museum.  “The Stimson team chose water pollution as their topic of study,” said Principal Edwin Smith. “Right away the team discovered that storm water run-off has polluted Huntington Bay.”

Under the supervision and direction of Stimson Technology teacher Mr. Robert Bilicki, the students worked diligently over a number of months to solve a problem that severely impacts the environment-- storm water runoff.  “After much research the team came-up with several different ways to help the situation and wrote about it in their research paper,” said Principal Smith. Their hours of hard work and dedication were rewarded with a 1st Place finish.  Congratulations to all who participated!
