Seventh and eighth grade foreign language students from Great Hollow Middle School recently competed in the 34th annual poetry competition at SUNY Old Westbury. The events are hosted by the American Association of Teachers of Italian, and Great Hollow world language teachers Josephine Nuccio and Grace Vella accompanied the students.
Great Hollow Middle School students participants included: Natalie Boeri, Nicole Caputo, Connor Catania, Gia Cellucci, Michael Chavez, Francesca Covino, Caileigh Harrigan, Kristin Krause, Juliana Maloney, Jayden Mayer, Jillian Mayer, Luis Pop and Thomas Rorick. In Gara di Canto 2019, which was part of the singing portion of the competition, Gia Cellucci placed third for her rendition of “Sebben Crudele.”
All students received participation certificates for their Italian poetry readings. Students were required to memorize and recite an Italian poem of 12-30 lines before a panel of judges and were evaluated on poise, intonation, pronunciation and interpretation. More than 200 students from 20 districts competed this year.
Eighth-grade scientists at Great Hollow Middle School recently participated in a hands-on experiment when representatives from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory visited the school on March 29. The students genetically engineered bacteria with the green fluorescent protein gene for bioluminescence normally found in the Pacific jellyfish, Aequoria victoria. Students learned about and utilized some of the same techniques that are employed by pharmaceutical companies to produce human insulin. The students successfully created genetically modified bacteria and were able to see them glow.
Students in Ms. Dicpinigaitis’ science class at Great Hollow Middle School recently completed a lesson on matter. Students hypothesized about whether or not the air in the classroom is considered matter. After weighing a small sample of water on a beam scale, the students added an Alka-Seltzer tablet to the water to determine if matter can be created or destroyed during a chemical reaction. The students re-weighed the water after the tablet dissolved and recorded their results.
