The First Annual Science and Engineering Fair for all middle school and high school students in Nassau County was held on Saturday, May 18 at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City. Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano joined students from Plainview Old-Bethpage Middle School.
The event, the first county-wide science and engineering fair created by any county in New York State, was co-sponsored by The Center for Science Teaching and Learning (CSTL), Long Island Forum for Technology (LIFT), WAC Lighting, Rotary, and EmPower Solar.
“Long Island has many opportunities for young people because our economic development team is attracting more and more high tech and science focused companies to Nassau,” said Mangano. “Nassau County is helping our young people understand the importance of science and technology by encouraging their work on science and engineering projects.”
