On Saturday, June 3, the sophomore students of Carmel Science Research competed at the Somers Science Fair: A 1st-Year Science Research Competition. This is the only science research competition of its kind in NY that provides the opportunity for first-year science research students to present their intended research design in a formal setting (along with sister fair, the Westlake Science Fair). Gretta Silsdorf placed 2nd in the category of Medicine and Health. She presented her research entitled New Occupational Therapy Methods for Improving the Daily Life of a Child effected by Sensory Processing Disorder. Also, Siobhan Cosgrave placed 3rd in the category of Behavioral Science.
