Heritage Middle School Hosts 6th Annual Saturnelli Science Fair
Students at Heritage Middle School in New Windsor recently participated in the 6th Annual Saturnelli Science Fair on Saturday, March 24, 2012. The annual event was renamed last year in memory of former Newburgh Enlarged City School District Superintendent of Schools Dr. Annette M. Saturnelli, a former chemist and avid science advocate.
In addition to the exhibits on display, a science variety show was performed by Mad Science for students and family members in attendance.
Newburgh Enlarged City School District Superintendent of Schools Ralph A. Pizzo greeted the students and their families during the award presentation and shared his enthusiasm and awe after walking through the exhibits on display.
Heritage Science Teacher and Science Fair Advisor Aileen Toback beamed with pride at the accomplishments of the students. “Our students have worked very diligently over the past three months to prepare for the science fair, conducting their very own scientific investigation while following the principles set forth in the scientific method and sound inquiry techniques,” explained Toback. Toback encouraged the students to take pride in their work and continue to strive for excellence. In addition to the teachers within her building, Toback thanked Mount Saint Mary College for their continued support of the program.
