GM Tour - Engineering and Robotics!

Health Sciences Charter School students interested in careers in engineering and robotics toured the GM Tonawanda Plant this week!

Students described the tour as "fantastic." They got to tour the engine assembly and see how much technology is utilized in the production of GM vehicles. As well, they were treated to learning about different careers in the manufacturing industry. Students were so engaged that they spent additional time with questions.

To get involved in field trip and internship activities, stop by the Guidance Suite to see Career Coordinator, Mrs. Morgante or email dmorgante@healthsciencescharterschool.org

Thank you to Mrs. Morgante and our friends at GM for this opportunity!

Exciting News for WNY STEM

WNY STEM came back to their 3D Prosthetic Hand host site, Health Sciences Charter School on Tuesday, October 24th to celebrate the grant they were recently awarded.

New York Assembly Member Crystal Peoples-Stokes joined Laura Perloff, Director of Advocacy and Strategic Alliances of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), to announce a $2,000 grant for WNY STEM to support our programs.

“With more and more of our daily lives being intertwined with technology, a STEM/STEAM education is even more critical today. Whether developing mobile apps, drones and autonomous cars, designing computer programs, operating manufacturing machinery, or building human appendages like the students from WNY STEM recently did, understanding the basics is a necessity. It’s imperative that we properly educate our workforce of the next generation in order to keep our region’s future competitive and bright. I applaud Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America for this investment towards STEM curriculum, and congratulate the students for doing excellent work and positively impacting people’s lives,” stated Assemblywoman Crystal D. Peoples-Stokes.

"The biopharmaceutical industry is committed to investing in future innovators who will keep America at the forefront of new breakthroughs," said Laura Perloff. "Innovative extra-curricular programming like the programs provided by WNY STEM are inspiring tomorrow's STEM leaders. The skills that participants gain from the hands-on experience curriculum will help prepare them for future careers in the STEM fields."

“WNY STEM is honored to accept this STEM Talent Pipeline Grant,” said Cherie Messore. “Encouraging STEM learners to pursue science, technology, engineering, and math careers is central to our mission. Support like this will aid WNY STEM's efforts to collaborate with businesses, schools, and like-minded organizations to facilitate rich learning experiences to inspire all learners and the next generation workforce.”

A Message From the Principal Follow Up

HSCS Community:

On Thursday, 10/11, I was made aware of an insect found in the CFI presumed to be a single bed bug. Bed bugs are not a health issue and are found in many places including hotels, planes, movie theaters and schools.

As a precaution, we requested that our pest management company (Orkin) inspect and treat the space as needed. They examined the insect and determined that it was a single bed bug, but do NOT believe there are signs of an infestation. The area will be treated after school on Friday, 10/12, closed for the appropriate amount of time, and thoroughly cleaned by Janitronics thereafter.

Thank you for your understanding.

Sincerely,
Dr. Hank Stopinski

A Message From the Principal - 10/11/17

HSCS Community:

On Friday morning (10/6), I was made aware of an insect found in the front office presumed to be a single bed bug. Bed bugs are not a health issue and are found in many places including hotels, planes, movie theaters and schools. As a precaution, we requested that our pest management company (Orkin) inspect and treat the front office as needed. They examined the insect and determined that they were in fact NOT bed bugs and that the office area was clear of any concern.

As a precaution, out pest management company regularly inspects and performs routine preventative maintenance of our school and the grounds. At no time has our school ever had an outbreak or infestation of bed bugs.

This afternoon (10/11), a student chose to video tape a single insect in one of our classrooms and posted it on social media suggesting that it was a bedbug. The insect has been captured and will once again be inspected by our service. The classroom will have an intensive cleaning this evening. An update will be shared with the students, staff and partners of our school once the report from our pest management company is received.

Thank you for your understanding.

Sincerely,


Dr. Hank Stopinski, Principal
