Congratulations to all WESEF 2012 participants!

The Westchester Science & Engineering Fair was held on Saturday, March 10th, 2012 at Sleepy Hollow High School.  In total, a record number of 330 student presenters showcased their research achievements in this highly competitive high school science competition.  Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, WESEF was able to award over 150 category awards for projects placing 1st – 4th in their cateogies as well as an additional 120 special awards prizes. 

 

 

Thanks to a generous donation from Progenics Pharmaceuticals, the primary sponsor of the Westchester Science & Engineering Fair, the top 9 individual projects and top 4 team projects earned an all expenses paid trip to compete in the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair held this year in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania!  Those student winners are:
