Annual PAL Science Fair Showcases NYC Students’ Impressive STEM Talents

The annual Police Athletic League science fair is a platform for students from all five boroughs to showcase their knowledge of science, technology, engineering, and math. This year’s event took place at the PAL center in Longwood, where young minds gathered to present their projects centered around natural disasters.

The competition was fierce as fifth through eighth-grade students displayed their creations that were designed to withstand various disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires and more for at least 20 seconds. Among the projects were structures resembling bridges, highways, and armories showcasing the creativity and innovation of the young engineers in training.

Students were encouraged to explore the fields of science and engineering while demonstrating their skills. It was a day filled with excitement, learning and celebration of young talent in the realm of STEM. The top prize of $500 went to the winning team to fund a STEM project at their center. Overall it was an inspiring event that highlights the potential of young scientists and engineers.
