Students from Dodd and the high school spoke about the district’s nanotechnology initiative on the Long Island News Radio 103.9 FM radio broadcast at McArthur Airport.

Accompanied by high school science research teacher Edward Irwin, senior Rajiv Chanda and seventh-graders Cedenia Henry and Sameerah Lawal discussed the district’s ongoing partnership with Brookhaven National Laboratory, which recently accepted Freeport’s proposal, “Bringing Nanotechnology into the High School Curriculum,” and spoke about their own experiences. The show ran for 30 minutes and was led by Robert Vecchio, president of the William Floyd School District Board of Education.

The students’ experience was a testament to not only their passion for learning and nanotechnology, but also to the Freeport Schools’ commitment to providing them with opportunities in advanced science topics.
