Science Olympians at Finley MS

A group of Finley Middle School students recently participated in the Long Island Science Olympiad, competing in a multitude of scientific activities against students from across Nassau and Suffolk counties.

Finley’s young scientists competed against participants from over 40 middle schools. Teacher Jeff Eisele served as the lead advisor with teacher Natalie Camisa-Schiraldo and Science chairperson/Finley Middle School Assistant Principal Dr. Thomas Pye providing support. Ryan Telese and Joseph Yee fared well in the Mousetrap Vehicle event, while Amanda Ieraci and Monica Jagustyn gave an impressive showing in the Boomilever event (a device built to hold a specified weight a given distance from a vertical surface).
