Smithtown, NY - June 11, 2018 - Suffolk County Legislator Robert Trotta welcomed kindergarten student Gianna Kelly and her family, as well as Park View Elementary Principal Kevin Storch to the June meeting of the Legislature to congratulate her on taking first place in the kindergarten division in the annual Brookhaven National Laboratory’s Elementary School Science Fair. Legislator Trotta pointed out that his is the first time that Park View Elementary School has won first place in this contest.
Gianna Kelly’s project involved placing light and dark colored crayons in water to learn which colors would float or sink. In testing them, she discovered that it was not the color of the crayon, but how it was placed in the water. If the crayon was positioned horizontally on the water, it floated, but if it was placed with the pointed or flat end in the water, it sank.
“I commend all of these students and their teachers for an excellent job in competing in this annual contest as there were 470 projects submitted by 110 Suffolk County schools,” said Suffolk County Legislator Robert Trotta. “I am very proud that since I have been a legislator that we have had winners from my district each year,” added Legislator Trotta.
