Saint Saviour students speak at Conference

May 22, 2019

On Monday, May 20, over 20 Saint Saviour students along with three faculty members attended the NY Sun Works' Youth Conference "DISCOVERING SUSTAINABILITY SCIENCE" at Symphony Space in Manhattan. NY Sun Works helps manages Saint Saviour’s greenhouse classroom. Saint Saviour is the first all-girls high school in the dioceses with a Greenhouse Classroom.

Two students presented their research on Sustainability Science to a sold-out auditorium of 750 students and teachers during the 8th annual NY Sun Works Youth Conference. Research presentations were from: Alaina '20 on Magnetism and Its Effect on Plant Growth and Jaslin '21- The Effect of Thermotherapy on the Shelf-Life of Fragaria Ananassa.

One student, Mary '20, read her poem: "Hope for our Planet". Two journalists from Saint Saviour’s award-winning newspaper, Skyline, interviewed the guest speakers throughout the day.
