Sophomore Takes First Place Honors in Science and Technology Entry ProgramLongwood High School sophomore Esmeralda Acevedo-Velasquez took first place honors in the New York State Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) held at Suffolk County Community College. 

More than 100 participants competed in the program, which promotes mathematics, communication skills, leadership, computer applications, and career readiness for students in grades 7-12.

Using batteries, solar panels, wood, alcohol, and a programming tool, her project, How Swarm Robots Function, proved that multiple robots are more beneficial in detecting chemicals by 35 percent.  

The Science and Technology Entry Program develops the abilities and skills of students to prepare them for entry in careers in math, science, technology, and the licensed professions.
