Five School Districts on Long Island have produced finalists in the prestigious national Regeneron Science Talent Search competition. The students come from Brentwood, Herricks, Jericho, Roslyn and Syosset High Schools.
Finalists will travel to Washington, D.C., in March, where they will compete before panels of expert judges for more than $1.8 million in total awards. The winners were selected from 300 semifinalist scholars announced this month, and a total applicant pool of nearly 2,000. Regeneron winners typically spend weeks or even months in university laboratories, working closely with adult faculty.
