S.T.E.A.M. is an acronym that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics. At NSHAHS, we have always placed an emphasis on science, math and related research. This foundation has evolved over the years and we are now a premier educational facility for computer science, engineering and the arts as well. 
Our students not only learn these disciplines but they compete (and excel) in science and engineering fairs; examine and construct impactful research studies; create, innovate and develop software and hardware solutions; and are recognized for their success.

Jason Kurlander and Dylan Makani
NSHAHS has two students, out of the fifty-six Long Island students selected, from the 491 semifinalists named nationwide on Oct. 17 in the 2017 Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology.  Jason Kurlander and Dylan Makani are the only Yeshiva students from Long Island to make the semi-finals.The semifinalists' projects were selected from more than 1,860 in science, technology, engineering and math fields (S.T.E.M.). The Siemens Foundation established the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology in 1999. The Competition is the nation’s premier science research competition for high school students and seeks to promote excellence by encouraging students to undertake individual or team research projects. It fosters intensive research that improves students' understanding of the value of scientific study and informs their consideration of future careers in these disciplines.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Launch Blastoff Event




On Sunday, September 17th, 2017, twenty-one North Shore students from all grades met in North Shore's Beit Midrash to participate in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Launch Blastoff Event. The MIT Launch event interfaces selected high schools with MIT professors to bring engineering products to market. The emphasis is on projects that have a positive impact on the world. The theme for this year is Environmental Sustainability, Energy Production and Agriculture. During the event orchestrated and led by club founder and president Scott Soifer, students formed into four groups, brainstorming several different ideas and inventions. 

They began the brainstorming process, and going forward, we will meet weekly (for the next few months) to further develop ideas into real life solutions. If students make it to the next round, they will come up with a business plan which they will present at MIT in front of a live audience. Good luck everyone!  We can't wait to see what happens next!  Stay tuned...
