Lynbrook's Our Lady of Peace hosts science fair

A very interesting project created by Megan Watson on who makes better eyewitnesses — men or women?

Our Lady of Peace School hosted a science fair on Feb. 27 where dozens of sixth, seventh and eighth graders displayed their work for the community to see.

There were projects on a variety of subjects, including fingerprints, distracted driving and concussions. But the night’s top prize went to eighth graders Aiden Ryder and Gavin Ford for their project on the age children acquire gender-based preconceptions about jobs.

Jamie Keegan, a seventh grader, took second place for her project on how to take DNA out of a strawberry. Fellow seventh grader Ryan Romaine placed third for his work on comparing memories in adults and children.
