  • Science is the Key to a Better Tomorrow


    In early March the Oyster Bay High School Gymnasium was buzzing with innovation and experimentation as the OBHS Science Department hosted the annual 7th Grade Science Fair.


    The Supervisor of the Science and Technology Departments, Ms. Janna Ostroff said, “In reflection, I want the community to recognize the creativity and depth of learning that were celebrated at the Science Fair.”


    OBHS Science Teacher Mr. Stephen Acquaro said, “Those that won are going to be invited to participate in the Nassau County Science Fair in June. This was their time to showcase their hard work and dedication to curiosity. The kids did a great job.” 


    Each 7th grade science class earned individual honors by period and major awards were given to over-all winners.
