Scheck Hillel Community School's Girls STEAM Club Awarded Prestigious Grants

Girls Building STEAM Club

North Miami Beach – Scheck Hillel Community School’s Girls Building STEAM Club has been awarded two grants for the student-developed program entitled, “Designing the Future: Using Fashion to Address Ecological Needs.” This innovative program is exclusively for girls in Grades 3-10.

Conceived by the student club, this initiative will team Lower School students with Upper School mentors to investigate ecological issues specific to the South Florida environment. Teams will design and produce wearable fashion that will bring attention to and help find solutions for the problems the students have identified.

Designing the Future is partially funded by two grants. The Women’s Impact Initiative of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation will support the program’s faculty, a project exhibit and the opportunities for students to present at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference in Philadelphia and the FETC: Future of Education Technology Conference in Orlando. The Technology, Education, Research & Redesign Alliance (TERRA, Inc.) grant will expand Scheck Hillel’s Multimedia Maker Lab beyond traditional Design/STEM areas of study with technology and equipment for fashion design, robotics, art and jewelry production.

“Designing the Future epitomizes Scheck Hillel’s commitment to empowering our students to maximize achievement, explore passions and foster identity,” said Vanessa Donaher, Scheck Hillel’s Head of School. “We are grateful to the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, TERRA and faculty advisor Nancy Penchev for bringing our students’ innovative spark of an idea to life.”

Nancy Penchev, Scheck Hillel’s I Lab Instructor and Lower School Technology Coordinator, guided the students through the program development and grant application processes and is eager for next steps. “We will research local ecological issues, interview experts, design and produce the fashion and share our process with the world through @girlsbuildingsteam and #eHillel on Instagram and Twitter,” she said.

Scheck Hillel applauds the club’s grade 7 students who led the grant application process: Ellie Esquenazi, Eva Gelb, Zohara Schrager, and Jessica Waxenghiser.

Designing the Future will launch in February 2019 and will present a spring showcase of research findings and fashion products. After the showcase, the students will auction the fashion and distribute earnings to the school's Kulanu Scholarship Fund and the Girls Building STEAM program.

Scheck Hillel’s I Lab is a dedicated space for inspiration and innovation, designed to extend Kindergarten-Grade 5 classroom learning in an environment that promotes collaboration and experimentation. In the I Lab, students engage in developmentally sequenced activities focused on Design/STEM concepts with a social studies focus. In Grades 6-12, the Multimedia Maker Lab is the hub for Design/STEM learning. Scheck Hillel offers a 4-year high school Design/STEM program of hands-on laboratory courses designed to mimic work environments in the real world. Inquisitive learners who are tenacious creative problem-solvers may apply to the program for Grade 9.

Anyone that comes will be absolutely ecstatic when they hear this wonderful concert and especially seniors.

He is a co-founder of the Yiddish New York festival and the artistic director of KlezKanada, two of today's central hubs for Klezmer music and folk arts. The Honorable Mentshn Klezmer Band is truly a stellar group of musicians. There will also be an opening performance by the highly acclaimed Jaime Bronsztein Klezmer Band.

This show has been made possible with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor, the Board of County Commissioners and many other anonymous donors.
