Kellenberg strives to bring every student success by offering courses to highlight the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, otherwise known as STEM. The STEM department at Kellenberg has designed voluntary courses open to seniors in Calculus and Physics with the intention to broaden their knowledge in these fields.
According to Senior Frank Rizzo, “Statistics is a big part of the sciences, and the seminar is a great way to get ahead.” He is planning on attending Binghamton University in the fall in order to deepen his understanding of and pursue a career in STEM. It is clear that these seminars will be of great benefit to Frank.
The Calculus Seminar, taught by Mrs. Bernardini, will be attended by 29 students and the Statistics Seminar, instructed by Mr. Casalinuovo, has 41 registered seniors. Danielle Field ‘21 is eager to further her STEM knowledge. She has shared: “I thought this would be a good introduction to what I would be learning in some of my psychology classes this fall.”
The Senior Seminars begin the week following the Senior Comprehensive Exams and conclude at the start of the Underclass Comprehensive Exams. They are free of charge and open to all soon-to-be graduates who are planning on pursuing a career in STEM.
