Three hundred students were named Regeneron Science Talent Search finalists - 38 were from Long Island - and six of the "whiz kids" all go to Syosset High School.

The Regeneron Science Talent Search scholars were selected from 1,949 applications from 627 high schools across 48 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and four other countries.

Scholars were chosen based on their research, leadership skills, community involvement, commitment to academics, creativity in asking scientific questions and exceptional promise as STEM leaders demonstrated through the submission of their original, independent research projects, essays and recommendations.
