Sylvan Avenue Elementary School fifth-grade student Alyssa Ayerle and third-grader Brennan Cole received honorable mention designations at this year’s Brookhaven National Laboratory Elementary School Science Fair competition. 

Alyssa’s project, titled “Will the fish be affected?” utilized a small fan in a fish tank to mimic wind turbines placed in local ecosystems to see if their usage negatively effects the sea life residing there. 

Brennan’s project, “Shhh…It’s a secret,” tested different cleaning solutions, such as dish soap and laundry detergent to see which was the most effective at cleaning. Additionally, he created his own dish soap to further enhance the possible outcomes of his project.
