  • ESM science research students published in RCSB PDB Newsletter as SPARK particpants through brookhaven National Lab

    Students and teachers from Long Island school districts (Eastport South Manor HS, Northport HS, Bayshore HS, Connetquot HS, Pendleton Hauppauge HS, William Floyd HS, Shelter Island HS) are collaborating on the crystallization, generation of putative ligands, and elucidation of protein structures at the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS II) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL).

    This collaboration is part of the SPARK Program, Students Partnerships for Advance Research and Knowledge, a collaborative program by the Office of Educational Programs and the NSLSII. The overarching goal is to provide students and teachers with authentic inquiry-based research to develop skills that promote success across all domains of science. Students and teachers learn how to crystallize proteins and use advanced liquid handling techniques to resolve novel structures and identify potential ligands. Through these hands-on experiences, they are also learning the fundamentals of X-ray crystallography. One of the goals of this collaboration is to contribute new structures to the PDB archive.

    More than creating student researchers at the NSLS II, this collaboration increases student understanding of protein structure and function in biology.  Structural biology; the study of proteins which includes their three-dimensional shape and function, is often an abstract concept that student’s express difficulty in fully understanding in spite of molecular visualization software programs.  Although these software programs enable students to “see” the molecular structure, they often have no understanding how these structures were derived resulting in a limited basis for critical analysis. This collaboration helps solve that problem through student’s direct experience.

    This project began with collaborative meetings between teachers, students and scientists to develop a competitive proposal for review. Students and teachers also gained experience in how science really works, it is not done in isolation but relies on collaboration. All work is the collective effort of the individual members; no one can succeed alone, the success of one is the success of all.  This partnership between students, teachers and scientists has enabled students as users of NSLS II to obtain hands-on real-world experience in structural biology.

    For the past year students and teachers from multiple districts gathered together at BNL to crystallize proteins under various conditions for examination by X-ray diffraction. Students and teachers had to learn how to problem solve and troubleshoot several hundred crystallization experiments that rarely worked as originally planned. Students and teachers experienced the success and failure of real science research and instead of being discouraged they eagerly kept coming back for more.

    Eastport-South Manor didn’t care which division it was, so long as the Sharks walked off the court with a championship.

     

    A year after winning the Suffolk Division I title, No. 2 Eastport-South Manor captured the Division II championship, defeating No. 1 Hauppauge in four sets at Suffolk CCC-Brentwood on Wednesday. Eastport-South Manor won, 34-36, 25-11, 25-19, 25-23, and advances to the Long Island championship at 2 p.m. on Nov. 10, taking on either Bellmore JFK or Jericho at Suffolk CCC-Brentwood.

     

    “Whatever we had to do to win, we were going to do it,” outside hitter Adam Burk said.” Nobody believed in us, but we always believed in ourselves. We wanted to prove everybody wrong.”  Eastport-South Manor’s unconventional title defense didn’t come easy.

     

    The Sharks (7-8) had chances to put the first set away, but couldn’t connect on that one, big play against a determined Hauppauge (9-6). It was a frustrating start and ESM knew it needed a quick turnaround if it was going to have a chance.  ESM did just that in the second set, jumping out to a five-point lead and finding its rhythm thanks to some strong play at the net.

     

    “We told the guys they had to play in the moment,” coach Bill Kropp said. “They couldn’t think about anything else, just play their game and be confident.”
