Monsignor Farrell High School students will have the opportunity to put the knowledge gained in the classroom to action in a variety of experiences that will prepare them for the myriad of careers in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Construction of our new science and STEM labs will further enhance our program of study.
The Future of Robotics in STEM Education - The robotics field is growing at an incredible rate, and students are benefiting from the inclusion of robotics in STEM education. Robotics in the classroom has positive results on students such as encouraging students to pursue more STEM career paths and develop the necessary 21st century skills that will enable them for success in the future. Monsignor Farrell High School has launched a robotics club and will be offering a robotics elective in September, 2020.
Partnering with organizations such as Northwell Health and Engineering Tomorrow, students will be engaged in an assortment of experiential learning such as:
- Robotics Club and elective course
- Attending seminars taught by experts in STEM fields
- Completing volunteer hours and shadowing opportunities at Staten Island University Hospital
- Exploring clinical and non-clinical career opportunities
- Participating in inquiry-based projects and experiments
- Engaging in critical thinking tasks tailored to STEM fields
Investing in the Future
Farrell will be initiating a multi-year, multi-million dollar major capital campaign, with the initial phase of construction focusing on the completion of our new biology, chemistry, physics and STEM laboratories. Pictured below: Architectural rendering of the new labs
