GN South Wins Again

The Virtual Regional Middle 

School Science Bowl

The competition hosted by Brookhaven 

Lab included teams from Long Island 

and New York City schools


UPTON, NY–Teams from Great Neck South 

Middle School earned first and third place 

in the Long Island and New York City Middle 

School Science Bowl hosted virtually by the 

U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven 

National Laboratory on Saturday, Feb. 27. 

The tournament, part of the DOE National 

Science Bowl® (NSB), quizzed students on 

earth science, physical science, life science, 

math, general science, and the exciting work 

happening at national laboratories.


A total of 20 teams from 11 schools across 

Long Island and New York City competed in 

the virtual academic tournament. Great Neck 

South Team 2 earned a spot alongside national 

finalists from regional competitions in the NSB 

preliminary rounds in April. The top 32 finalists 

will move on to compete virtually for the 

national title in May.


First place team members Yilin Qiao, Ashley 

Nguyen, Allen Vee, and Zican Zhang practiced 

often with coaches Diane Caplain and Tobias 

Hatten. They also kept a few good luck

 mascots—stingray and penguin stuffed animals

GN South Wins

2021 Regional HS 

Science Bowl


The team of high school students secured a

back-to-back win in the virtual competition

hosted by Brookhaven National Laboratory


UPTON, NY–Great Neck South High School earned the

top spot in the Long Island Regional High School Science

Bowl hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s

Brookhaven National Laboratory on Saturday, Jan. 30.  

The winning team faced off virtually against 23 other

teams from a total of 18 high schools in the regional

competition, part of the DOE National Science

Bowl® (NSB). The students tested their knowledge in

areas including biology, chemistry, earth and space

science, energy, mathematics, and physics in the 

fast-paced question-and-answer tournament.  

The win marks the second consecutive year team

members Anthony Zhan, Bradley He, Matthew Tsui, 

David Wang, and Jansen Wong secured first place

for their school.   

“By having the same team for both years, you grow

a lot as a team,” said team captain Zhan. “I think a big

factor in our success was our team chemistry. We play

really well as a team and as a group of friends.” 

For the first time since its establishment in 1991, the

regional competition had to pivot to a virtual format.

Teams competed remotely via video chat rooms ran by

volunteer moderators, judges, and scorekeepers. After

three preliminary rounds, 16 teams advanced to elimination

rounds, in which Great Neck South outlasted the rest.

Mary Alexis Pace, coach to second place team The

Wheatley School, acknowledged Brookhaven’s Office

of Educational Programs (OEP) and volunteers for their

hard work in organizing the regional competition.

“I am thankful Brookhaven Lab was able to make this

competition work in such a strange year,” Pace said.

“I know I speak for all of my students when I say that

we truly appreciate the efforts that go into making this

event happen.” 

Great Neck South will join the top teams from regional

science bowls around the country in the National

Science Bowl®, which will be held virtually throughout

April and May 2021.

60th Reunion Delayed

We have been working towards confirming a date

and location for our 60th Reunion.  However, at

this time, the travel and other circumstances are

too unpredictable in order for us to lock in a

venue, make a deposit, and have comfort that

travel will not be disrupted in late October when

we were planning to hold the event.  Because of

the commitments that we would have to make,

the present environment is too uncertain so we

will move the tentative plan to late March or

April 2021, depending on how events unfold.

We still look forward to seeing you all.

Remember, success delayed is not success


- Keith Fleer and Norm Portnow, Co-Chairmen




With Help From

The Lewis E. Love Memorial Science

Education Award Fund, 

GNPS Launches New Elementary

Robotics Program



                        Lewis E. Love

        Memorial Science Education Award


At its 50th Reunion, the Class of 1963 (North) announced its

intention to establish an award in memory of Lewis Love, whom many

class members consider to be the best teacher they ever had, as its

class gift to the Great Neck Public Schools. A small committee worked

to make the award a reality.


Through 2016, we raised ~$60,000 (~half of which was donated by our

Class of 1960 members) that will fund an Award of up to $10,000 annually,

for at least 6 years, for projects that will advance science education in the

Great Neck Public Schools. Any tenured teacher in the Great Neck Public

Schools will be eligible to apply for the award - s/he need not be a science

teacher. We wanted to establish a system for granting the award that will

continue beyond our personal abilities to manage it, so we have established

a rotating committee of teachers and students who will judge the applications

each year.


We continue to seek additional donations. With your help and the help of

the many other people who were touched by Mr. Love's magic in both the

North and South schools, we can extend the duration of the Love Award,

a meaningful tribute to an extraordinary teacher.


We are asking you to do two things: make a generous contribution to

the Lewis E. Love Memorial Science Education Award, and forward

this appeal and the donation form and FAQs to as many Great Neck

alumni as you can.   (Click on "Love FAQs & Donation Form" on

the left hand side of this page).


You will see on the donation form that all donations must be made by

check to the Great Neck Public Schools and must be accompanied by the

form so that the School District can keep track of and send

acknowledgements to donors. As the check will be made out to the Great

Neck Public Schools, donations to the award are tax-deductible to the

extent of the law.If you have any questions that are not answered by

the attached form or FAQs, please feel free to contact any member of

the fundraising committee.
