Nassau County Legislator Howard J. Kopel congratulated two District 7 students as semi-finalists in the 2011 Intel Science Talent Search. Legislator Kopel presented Abraham Killanin, from Lawrence High School and Nathan Akhavan, from Rambam Mesivta-Maimonides High School (both accompanied by their mentor Rebecca Isseroff) with a County Citation at a recent meeting of the Nassau County Legislature.
Participating in the Intel Science Search requires a great deal of effort. Students submit a lengthy written report on an independent science-research project and are then judged by noted scientists from a variety of disciplines on their research, scientific originality, and creative thinking.
