The Long Island Science Congress is a competition focusing on science research projects requiring project proposals, abstracts, reports, and oral presentations based upon actual experiments and/or field observations, performed by the participants themselves, that demonstrate the proper use of the scientific method. These projects require physical displays, the use of instrumentation and scientific materials, collection of field or experimental data, data analysis, and representation of findings. Congratulations again to these talented students!
