Science teacher and Research Coordinator Gilana Reiss reports from Phoenix, Arizona with Hunter’s 5 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair Finalists: Axel Feldman & Stefan Colton; Kalia Firester; Alexander Epstein & Anna Blech. All of our students did extremely well and had a lot of fun presenting their projects. Each of our projects drew a lot of attention.
In addition, Alex & Anna won 3rd place in the Microbiology Category for the entire fair and Kalia Firester won 2nd place in the Plant Sciences Category for the entire fair. Kalia is also getting a meteor named after her. Axel and Stefan entertained everyone and everyone was very impressed with their project that they did on their own without a mentor. Congratulations to all of them!
We are excited to announce an evolution of our after-school Mandarin program. Working with the Chinese Flagship Center of Hunter College, starting in Fall of 2013, after-school Mandarin at the Campus Schools will be a more substantial program which can lead courses that earn Hunter College credit. In 2013-14, we will be offering Non-credit Introduction to Chinese, Part I and Part II (Fall Semester and Spring Semester, respectively) for all grades and Hunter College Elementary Chinese I (full year) for Grades 8 and up. For more details, see the attached course descriptions and sign-up form.
