Honors Science Research
Instructor: Coyle   
Welcome to Methods of Science Research Honors!

During the three year course sequence, students become immersed in a particular area of science. They learn to read peer reviewed articles, create literature reviews, present articles. Ultimately the students will search for a mentor in a college or organization that will guide them through original summer experimental research. The summer research takes place in the summers between sophomore/junior and junior/senior years. Throughout the process the students keeps a lab journal and a portfolio of there work. They end of each year culminates in a Symposium where the students present their work. We follow the SUNY Albany Research in the High School program.

Congrats to Jack Hyslop
Congrats to Jack Hyslop for being named a Semifinalist in the prestigious Regeneron STS (Formerly known as INTEL STS). This is the first time a Science Research student from Tenafly HS earned this recognition!!! Congratulations!!!
Congrats to Kaitlyn Espiritu
Congrats to Kaitlyn Espiritu for advancing to the National Academy of Sciences conference to take place in Boston. This is the first time a Science Research student from Tenafly High School has earned this recognition!
Congrats to Jack Hyslop for advancing to the Nationals for JSHS
I am happy to report that Science Research student, junior Jack Hyslop, has advanced to the National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium after winning 1st Place Poster presenter at the Northern New Jersey Junior Science and Humanities Symposium at Rutgers University. Jack also won Best in Robotics project in the same competition.
He completed his project as part of our Science Research class and was mentored by Dr. Yi Guo of Stevens Institute of Technology. At the Nationals he will compete with the top students advancing from the fifty states.
The title of his project is "Design and Construction of a Biologically Inspired Robotic Fish".
Kailtyn Espiritu was recognized with 1st place in Ecology, Environmental & Earth Science I by the New Jersey Academy of Science
Congratulations to Science Research student junior Kailtyn Espiritu for recently being recognized with 1st place in Ecology, Environmental & Earth Science I by the New Jersey Academy of Science. She presented an oral presentation of her science research project to the 2016 Junior Academy Research Presentation. She now has the opportunity to be recognized at the national level.
Bryant, Kengo and Daniel win 2nd Place Outstanding Poster at UBP Symposium
Congratulations to Science Research students Bryant Lee (junior), Kengo Kuwama(junior) and Daniel Chung (sophomore) for achieving 2nd Place Outstanding Poster at the Urban Barcoding Project Symposium at Borough of Manhattan Community College in NYC. The title of their project was “Assessing the precision of lichens as index organisms of SO2 pollution”. They used Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), gel electrophoresis and other DNA barcoding techniques to answer their research question. Their poster along with those of other participants can be seen at:
Caroline Bucca publishes an article in Curious Science Writers
Congratulations to senior Caroline Bucca who’s article was published in the Curious Science Writers website! The topic is “convergence insufficiency, a disease that causes affected people to see double images”. Here is the link:
2015 SIEMENS Semifinalists -Congratulations!!!
Congratulations to Science Research students, juniors Kaitlyn Espiritu and Bryant Lee! They are Semifinalists in the 2015 Siemens Competition in Math, Science and Technology, a nationwide competition! They are among 16 Semifinalists in the State of New Jersey. This is the first time that THS science research students have achieved this prestigious recognition.
The recognition is for their project titled "Assessment of Sulfur Dioxide Air Pollution in Central Park through DNA Barcoding of Key Indicator Lichen Specimens" that Kaitlyn Espiritu, Bryant Lee and teammate, junior Kangmin Shin performed as part of our Science Research course. Congratulations to all! They did original experimental research including performing DNA extractions, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), and electrophoresis followed by DNA sequencing to achieve their research aims. The experimental work was performed at Cold Spring Harbor Harlem DNA Lab in NYC. We also thank Dr. Antonia Florio of Harlem DNA Lab, and Ms. Carol Pastushok for their guidance.
Congrats for a great year 2014-15!!!!

Students in AP Physics C and Science research Honors Recently participated in three enriching experiences:

a) November 27th-AP Physics C students and Science research students attend a field trip to Stryker Corporation where they attended presentations by engineers and scienctists about the research and development of artificial orthopeadic implants and they experienced first hand the manufacturing process of artificial knees and hips.

b) November 13th- Professor Irina Sekerina of CUNY presented her research work on "Eye Tracking" to Science Research students.

c) November 10th- Science Research and AP Physics students attend a lecture by Prof. Frederik Simons of Princeton University (Weighing the Earth from Spaceand Listening tro Earthquakes from With the Oceans) and Prof. Andrew Baker of Rutgers University (Dusty Galaxies and Putting the Physics in Astrophysics). Students also visited the observatory at BCC.
