Co-Curricular Activities

  • High School Clubs:

    The FIRST Robotics Club (Team)
    Advisors: Salvatore Sparacino, Anthony Gibson

    This club is perfect for students who enjoy hands-on, real-world application of knowledge.  Students will be immersed in the exciting world of engineering and business, from fundraising to designing a "Champion robot" that will compete in the "FIRST" ("For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology") which is a national contest.

    You will gain first-hand experience in all aspects of robotic design, from conceptualization to actualization in a relatively short but concentrated time period.  If you enjoy remote control toys, you will love the chance to drive the robot at the regional and possibly the national competition.  This is an incredible opportunity to interact with engineers and public relations professionals from local businesses. In addition, you will acquire key skills in project management, which can be applied to your schoolwork and, ultimately, to your future careers.

    Science Olympiad Club (Team)
     
    Students interested in enrichment in specific areas in science and technology can join the science olympiad team.  Students that are most prepared will be invited to participate on the team which will compete in science and technology event against other schools at the Eastern Long Island Regional Competition.
