The “Food is Resistance” team at the 2019 Expo. Their project was named best overall as voted on by Expo attendees.

On Wednesday, May 8, TVHS held its annual Expo, a student project showcase in the atrium of SUNY Polytechnic Institute’s ZEN building. The expo was a great presentation of how hard TVHS students and teachers work to create dynamic, authentic projects in both the STEM and Humanities fields. The projects were created during classes from all disciplines throughout the school year. Students were asked to revise them, create a 90-second “elevator pitch” and a visual display. 

After visiting student presentations, attendees voted for the best presentation in several categories.

Best Overall Project – Food is Resistance

Mikayla Collingbourne, Sophia Haggerty, Alaina March, Rishita Nagothi, and Adeline Weatherwax
