Mineola Students Judge ‘Flame Challenge’

Middle school students judge entries defining a flame for young scientists.

Students in Rich Richards’, Karen Carraro’s and Vince Interrante's classes at recently judged the “Flame Challenge,” a contest that asks the question “What is a flame?”

Sponsored by the Center for Communicating Science and actor Alan Alda, scientists from around the world submitted essays, poems, videos and cartoons explaining what a flame is in a way that an 11-year-old would understand.

More than 20 students from Mineola Middle School will be attending the awards ceremony on June 2 at the Kaye Theater at Hunter College in NYC.

Students who acted as judges will sing the “What Is Flame” song created by the winning entry.

As part of the event, students are also invited to attend the Cool Jobs in Science Expo after the ceremony.
