Habitats for Humanity
In November, Bethpage High School's Senior Seminar students volunteered at Habitats for Humanity, a nonprofit organization that builds homes from the ground up, helping to provide affordable housing and improve communities. Participating students spent the day cleaning up the job site, both outside and inside. Special thanks to Senior Seminar teachers Mrs. Shutkind and Mr. Gorman, who chaperoned the trip.
Marine Science Club Holiday Fundraiser
The Marine Science Club held a morning coffee/hot chocolate bar along with a baked goods fundraiser. As a part of the event, the Marine Science Club raffled off a Starbucks Gift Basket that was organized by the club members. The funds raised were used to purchase supermarket gift cards for needy families in our school community. The Marine Science Club raised nearly $300! Based on the success, the students plan to do it again on Friday, December 17, 2021 to help make the holidays joyful for some less fortunate families.
Exploring Engineering Through Project Based Learning
Bethpage High School educator Ms. Tess Strauch was recently selected by Siemens and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) to appear on their Video Webinar Series and share best practices, as well as personal insight about project and problem-based learning methods for high school students through the Engineering perspective. Ms. Strauch teaches a range of courses at Bethpage High School including Physics, Marine Biology, and Engineering and she has used project and problem-based learning strategies to produce great student achievement. This past school year was her first year teaching Engineering using the Siemens Engineering Design Curriculum. This curriculum is designed as a project based learning program and is very easy to adapt various projects to suit a range of students. The video webinar series can be accessed at the link below. Bethpage Schools congratulates Ms. Strauch on being selected by Siemens and ASME!

Sailing Away with Living Environment
Students in Bethpage High School's Grade 9 and 10 Goal Living Environment program experienced firsthand their local marine ecosystem. They sailed aboard the "The Christeen", a nationally registered historic landmark. On board was a marine biologist with a cooler filled with marine animals collected from the waters below them. They also collected creatures in a bottom dredge and pulled a plankton net behind the boat. The phytoplankton and zooplankton were taken back to school and studied under the microscope. A collection of live fish and other small animals were also taken back to the classroom for study and to display in the class aquariums. One of the most exciting parts of the trip was when the students raised the sails! The captain cut the engine and we experienced the wind driving the ship!
Town of Oyster Bay Annual Beach Clean Up
On Saturday, October 2, 2021, the Town of Oyster Bay held its annual beach clean up. Middle School and High School students from the Marine Science Club made this the largest turnout ever! Fifteen bags of trash were collected from the Long Island Sound side of Center Island and hauled off the beach! The weather was perfect and the views were spectacular! Our students then moved to the bayside to try their hand at fishing. Samples were collected of the local fish and other creatures that inhabit the rich salt marsh ecosystem. A big thanks to all of those who represented Bethpage by participating!
