The students at YHS of Monsey participated in a workshop for 3D design this week as part of their preparation for the upcoming technology and engineering initiative taking place in yeshiva next year. Three-dimensional modeling is the process of developing a mathematical representation of any three-dimensional surface of an object via specialized software.
The yeshiva’s talmidim also attended the CIJE Young Innovators conference at the Hilton in NYC on Sunday, May 7. There, they visited booths of STEM innovations created by frum high school students from schools across the New York area. The yeshiva hopes to inspire the talmidim to begin thinking about ideas for their own innovative projects, with a special focus on scientific solutions to halachic problems. Rabbi Rubin, menahel of YHSM, believes that STEM education is important to the students’ development—their best career options, and their key to future decisions, particularly in the technological age in which they live.
As part of their commitment to STEM education, the yeshiva will also be hosting a Summer Tech STEM camp this summer. The camp will be geared toward middle school students, with groups for both girls and boys who are interested in developing their interest in engineering, film production, animation, 3D design and coding.
