Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.

Congrats to CHHS Science Research students who participated in the WESEF Competition. One of the most most competitive regional competitions in the US and the world.  In 11 years, this competition has grown from 55 to over 500 Westchester students, all vying for one of 12 spots for the INTEL International Science and Engineering Fair.  ALL Croton students presented their original research with creativity and professionalism---everyone should be proud of their accomplishments. The following students received recognition for their work:

The Arizona State University Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiative, awarded for innovative solutions to sustainability challenges with an opportunity to compete on a national level, was awarded to:

BeNgum Abam-DePass for her project "Hydrilla verticillata (hydrilla) Management in the Croton River"

Henry Jaensch & William Rickett for their project,  "A Cooler Solar Panel:  Design and Testing of a Photovoltaic/Thermal System"

Armand Pappas for his project, "Effects of Frequency Modulation and Orientation on Efficiency of a Wireless Resonance Power Transfer System"

The Stockholm Junior Water Prize was awarded to BeNgum Abam-DePass.

The Lesason Ellis Team Project Award went to the team of Henry Jaensch and William Rickett. (Leason and Ellis are intellectual property lawyers)

4th place in the Behavior Category was awarded to:

Marissa Lewis for her project, "Analyzing Caretakers’ Attitudes Towards Including Relations with Down Syndrome in Genetic Therapy Studies".

Sam Roth for his project, "Usability and tolerability of a novel concussion reduction device used in high school football".

And on another note: At the Westchester-Rockland Junior Science and Humanities Symposium at John Jay HS last month, Charlotte Brodie was awarded 3rd place in Behavior in the poster competition and Olivia  Shaw was awarded 5th place in Behavior in the power point competition.
