Future engineers of New York City bridges may be coming from Staten Island. Nearly 100 high school students joined engineers for an interactive conference at Notre Dame Academy in Grymes Hill Friday morning. Students learned how to program a robot and build model bridges to go through stress tests. Organizers with the nonprofit, Engineering Tomorrow, said they hope to inspire more women and minorities to become engineers.
"We open the kids eyes to the possibility of being an engineer. The first question we ask these students in the morning is how many of you know an engineer, how many of you know what an engineer does and we get a very limited response," said Michael Legg, Executive Director at Engineering Tomorrow.
The students were also able to ask the volunteers from Manhattan college about majoring in engineering fields.

MODERN SCIENCE—Students from Preston High School in the Bronx and other schools in the archdiocese take in presentations at an Engineering Tomorrow conference Oct. 5 at Preston. Along with experiments on catapults and water re-use, the youths were instructed by engineering professionals and challenged to solve science-related problems. The pinnacle was the opening of a new engineering laboratory, above, donated by Engineering Tomorrow, a nonprofit organization that promotes engineering education in high schools.
The 2,000- square-foot lab offers students a hands-on learning environment with advanced technology, including 3-D printers, wind tunnels, catapults, stress strain testers, robotics equipment and advanced audio visual equipment that can broadcast to schools around the archdiocese. All archdiocesan high schools will have access to the lab...

More than 100 students from four different bronx high schools were able to learn about wind energy and 3-D printing at a conference put on by tomorrow engineering held at Preston High School. They're already getting hands on practice using 3-d printers and creating wind energy by building wooden windmill fans. The majority of these high schoolers have big plans to pursue careers in the stem field.Students were able to also work alongside engineer students at manhattan college learning through demonstrations interactive workshops.

Engineering Tomorrow opens doors to STEM on Staten Island
By Spectrum News NY1 | PUBLISHED 8:14 PM ET MAR. 27, 2019
High school students on Staten Island got a glimpse of what it's like to be an engineer. Around 100 students from six catholic schools attended the Engineering Tomorrow Conference at Monsignor Farrell High School in Richmondtown on Wednesday. They learned about angles, accuracy, and phototherapy, which is the use of light to treat certain medical conditions. The goal of the conference is to expose students to a field they may not be familiar with. "These are all modern stuff that's going on and we're all looking to make an impact on the world, so, I think that this is a good way to start," said Craig Sorrenti, a junior at Moore Catholic High School. The purpose of Engineering Tomorrow is to expose and attract high school students to the engineering field, especially girls and minority students.
