Riverdale SMART Team Presents at Peer School’s Symposium

[ May 19, 2014 ]

Sophomores Renée Landzberg and Madeleine Goldberg recently presented their work about the structure, function, and history of the deadly toxin ricin at a science symposium at Fieldston School.

As Riverdale’s SMART (Students Modeling A Research Topic) team, Renée and Madeleine put together a PowerPoint presentation and a large poster. Renée delivered the presentation solo (Madeleine preferred not to present), a daunting task since the other seven schools’ teams had from five to ten presenters each.

Science teacher Carolyn Pocius is the faculty advisor; Dr. Michael Stark represented Carolyn at the symposium because she had a conflict.
