Posted: Updated:

Four Long Islanders are among the smartest science students in the country. 

Andrew Brinton and Katherine St. George from John F Kennedy High School in Bellmore, Kyra McCreery from North Shore High School in Glen Head, and Ella Wesson from Manhasset High School are finalists for the Regeneron Science Talent Search.

Thousands of students apply, and now it's down to just 40 finalists.

The top 10 will be announced in Washington, D.C. in March.
