MONTROSE, N.Y. -- Hendrick Hudson High School students Jordan Hudock and Jazz Munitz competed as speakers on Saturday at the Westchester Rockland Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (WR-JSHS), held at John Jay High School in Cross River.
Munitz placed third in the Biology 1 and Biochemistry category, qualifying him to go the state finals at Albany on Wednesday, March 11 and Thursday, March 12. In Albany, he will be presenting a poster describing his research. First-and-second-place winners continue as speakers; third-and-fourth place continue as posters.
The symposium is designed to challenge and engage students in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). Individual students compete for scholarships and recognition by presenting the results of their original research efforts before a panel of judges and an audience of their peers. Opportunities for hands-on workshops, panel discussions, career exploration, research lab visits and networking are offered.
Earlier this academic year, Munitz was named a semifinalist in the Intel Science Talent Search. He was recognized for his research project, Microfluidics-Facilitated Synthesis and Characterization of Apoptosis-Inducing Low-Cost Nanoparticles for Cancer Therapeutics.
