East Meadow Students shine at science and engineering fair


Five students from the East Meadow School District were named winners in the Long Island Science and Engineering Fair.

W.T. Clarke High School senior Abishek Ravindran captured first place in the category of behavioral and social science, while seniors Sanjana Ahmed and Yuktha Chiguripati and junior Saniya Gaitonde received honorable mention in their respective categories. East Meadow High School senior Alyssa Fong merited an honorable mention in computational biology and bioinformatics.

Ravindran was eligible to compete in the International Science and Engineering Fair this spring, but event was canceled. The district extended congratulations to all the above students on their achievements.
