Rising scientists in the Bronx showcased their discoveries at an annual science fair Thursday at the New York Institute for Special Education.
The event was held for visually impaired preschool to 12th grade students who have been conducting research, collecting data and building projects around topics such as solar energy, invisible ink and slime since February.
The theme of the fair was "chemical reaction," and everything was displayed in braille.
"It's nice because it's something that the public school does," said Nestor Alfonso, an 11th grade student. "So, the fact that we get to participate in it as well, despite the fact that we're all visually impaired, is a nice feeling."
