NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Two high school seniors from Staten Island Technical High School are up for the $75,000 Intel science prize tonight for their research on dangerous air around us.
They are Nicole Simineri, 18, and Patrick Colossi, 18.
WCBS 880’s Wayne Cabot asked Simineri what is in the air that worries her.
“Fungal spores,” she answered.
Fungal spores come naturally from plants and blow through nature and that’s part of life. Why is it bad?
