Schechter School Wins First Place In Science Competition

Seventh grade students at Solomon Schechter School of Queens (SSSQ) won first place in the Virtual Science Competition, a program sponsored by the Israel Center for Excellence through Education (E2K).
Approximately 10 teams from Jewish day schools in the New York area participated in the “Life Tastes Good” experiment on January 15.  This experiment focused on the chemical, physical and biological aspects of soft drinks, covering such matter as the composition and taste of soft drinks, the packaging and recycling and the physical properties of soft drinks.  The team conducted the experiments and responded to questions using Smartboard technology, before judges located in Israel.  
A member of the team noted, “By using technology we were able to interactively participate with the schools and judges.  It was exciting to be able to discuss the findings with others.”
Founded in 1956, SSSQ is an innovative Conservative day school in Queens, providing Jewish students from diverse backgrounds with a superior secular and Judaic education. SSSQ encompasses early childhood, lower and middle schools.
