March 20, 2023— Students from High School North had success venturing outside the classroom these past few days, specifically on college campuses.

At Stockton University, which hosted the Jersey Shore Science fair this past Saturday, Viviana Onofrietti (left) won second place in Biochemistry. Her project, Inhibitory Effects of Phytochemicals from Agriculture By-Products as Therapeutic Agents on Predominant Oral Pathogens, impressed judges and took home the red ribbon.

Prior to that, PLE class attended the NJ Model Congress at Rider University March 16 and 17.

Natalie Rapciewicz served as Senate President, Katelyn Rizzo was selected as Whip for the Republican Party, and Connor Maffucci was selected as Whip for the Independent Party.

All participants had the opportunity to present proposed bills to committees and eventually the entire House or Senate. Teachers Melissa Devlin Paul Brunner expressed great pride in the work their students accomplished.
