2012 Siemens Science DayPosted: January 27, 2012
Yesterday, students at the Urban Assembly School for Applied Science & Mathematics in the Bronx experienced a morning of hands-on science discovery at Siemens Science Day. The hallways buzzed as the school’s one hundred sixth graders took part in designing, building, and testing paper helicopters and other engaging science lessons. The junior scientists learned by doing as they asked questions, drew their own conclusions and saw answers before their very eyes.
The day’s special guests included the teen winners of the 2011 Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology, America’s premier research competition for high school students. The teens recently won $100,000 scholarships for creating a nanoparticle that is like a Swiss army knife of cancer treatment and utilizing new gaming technology to analyze human walking patterns.
As always, the event was a ton of fun (and educational) for all those involved. Please take a look at some of the pictures from Siemens Science Day below!
