MS Trio Succeeds at STEM Challenge


The middle school sent a team of three students to the Team Packard 2017 STEM Challenge at Northport High School this spring. Brandon Palomba, Emily Puglisi and Olivia Zhang, all members of the school’s STEM Club, competed in four different challenges against 32 teams representing 10 different school districts. East Islip’s team placed second in the Density Challenge.

“These kids worked hard all year attending the STEM Club, and their hard work paid off,” said club adviser Darcie Schlott.
