Six students from the Nassau BOCES STEM Institute will advance to the final round of the Al Kalfus Long Island Math Fair at Hofstra University next month. In preparation for the fair, the teen mathematicians conducted extensive research on advanced mathematical concepts and prepared presentations. Competitors were required to defend and explain their research through PowerPoint presentations, posters and other materials.

“Our finalists are extremely pleased with their accomplishments and proud of the work they put into their research,” said STEM Institute Teacher Ellen Kessler Dubinsky. “All twelve students who participated said that it was a worthwhile, challenging experience. The process has been educational from start to finish.”
