SAS Central New York Science and Engineering Fair

On Sunday, March 26th, 2017 SASCS students participated in 38th Central New York Science and Engineering Fair (CNYSEF) today and competed against more than 40 schools and 200 projects. Students are judged by STEM professionals from local businesses and institutions such as Lockheed Martin and Syracuse University.

Our success in this science fair is unique among Syracuse schools as our school received 2 grand prize awards for the first time.  

SASCS students from grade 4-12, won 17 (seventeen) awards and scholarship. Based on their performance at CNYSEF, two students (Jamila Eatman  (11th grade) and Taha Hayali (6th grade)) won grand prize. 

We thank all our students, our teachers and our parents for this success, and we hope to increase our achievements next year. Please congratulate all these students. They had a very long Sunday and they all made us proud.
