The district took time to honor and praise the academic achievements of Ward Melville High School seniors Faima Quadir and Andrew Zhang during their November Board of Education meeting. 
 
Earlier this fall, Faima and Andrew were named semifinalists in the 2017 Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology based on the original research projects they completed with the help of dedicated mentors.

Andrew researched metallic and semiconducting carbon nanotubes and their effectiveness on computer functions. Faima researched sunlight radiance reaching the Earth and the ability to create models that predict, monitor and manage future climate change.
