Students at Westhampton Beach Elementary School displayed their knowledge of science at the school’s 21st annual math, science and technology Fair on March 21.

The event showcased a variety of science projects by students in grades 1-5, with topics ranging from germ-free hands and yeast activation to sound blockers and ripening bananas. 

This year’s fair winners were Luke Atkinson, kindergarten; Evan Pereya, first grade; Mary Rose Atkinson, second grade; Jack Ribbons, third grade; Gabriel Monserrate, fourth grade; and Rhylee Kirchner, fifth grade.   

The winning students are now eligible to compete in Brookhaven National Laboratory’s annual Elementary Science Fair Competition on May 4.
