2nd Annual Diocesan STEM Fair

Students Participate in 2nd Annual Diocesan STEM Fair
Posted on 04/23/2018

The second annual Diocesan STEM Fair was held at Holy Trinity High School on Saturday, April 14, and provided a showcase for many of the outstanding projects from individual Catholic elementary schools. The fair displayed and demonstrated 85 projects researched and developed by 127 students representing 28 Catholic elementary schools.  The STEM Fair highlights the rigorous STEM education programs that are in place at the Diocesan schools. The program, which is coordinated by Assistant Superintendent Anthony Biscione, brings together some of the best and brightest science students from all across Long Island.  All projects are reviewed by Honors science students from St. John the Baptist and Holy Trinity Diocesan high schools, by science teachers from the high schools, by educators from St. John’s University, and by officials from LITEEA, the Long Island Technology Engineering Education Association.  In addition to the student’s exhibits in the gym, this year’s event included the ‘Mercy Contraption’, a Rube Goldberg type of device that was conceived, created, and demonstrated by the students from Our Lady of Mercy School in Hicksville.
