Regal Eagles: Video Game Design

FIRST Robotics, in cooperation with Worcester Polytechnic Institute, ran a video game making competition. Participating students were provided one week in November to develop their games.  The Bethpage High School Robotics Team, Regal Eagles, entered two submissions and each was recognized with an award!  

One game tasked players to try to protect their computers against a virus, which won the "Music and Sound Award".  The other game tasked players to try to get out of an escape room, which won the "Judges Award".

Even working "virtually" and "social distancing", the Regal Eagles are still finding ways to ace competitions!  Congratulations to the Regal Eagles and team mentors, Mr. Zabell and Mr. LaSpina.

March Mammal Madness in Bethpage

Untitled_design_(44).png thumbnail182235

Schools throughout the Bethpage School District recently participated in March Mammal Madness, an annual tournament of simulated competition among animals that uses scientific literature to predict likely outcomes of the battle. The nationwide project was developed by mammalian biologist and professor Dr. Katie Hinde in 2013 and since has grown to include thousands of students from grades K-12.

Bethpage High School science teacher Susan Sciglibaglio introduced the project as a fun way to highlight and emphasize the importance of sustaining biodiversity, which is the overarching theme of her AP environmental science classes. The activity is tied to curriculum units on evolution, habitats, attributes and adaptations and participants can make their picks from student-generated research posted in the classroom.

Mrs. Sciglibaglio, along with science teacher Tess Strauch, set up a Google classroom for participants to submit their picks. They then went on to recruit teachers from other schools in the district to participate. As a result, classes at Bethpage High School, John F. Kennedy Middle School and Central Boulevard Elementary School have opened the tournament to almost 400 students.

In each school, large brackets are set up in the hallways to track the competitions and the winners. The battles take place on designated evenings and video recaps are posted on YouTube the next day. The classes watch the recaps together in person and discuss the outcomes as it pertains to their science units.

Students in Tess Strauch’s engineering class at Bethpage High School recently produced chocolate molds using a 3D printer and silicone putty. Students designed their molds using the CAD software Solid Edge. After printing them, they applied a silicon putty around the 3D printed models to create different chocolate molds.

The purple mold and 3D print of video game figures was done by junior Kevin Zheng, the yellow mold and 3D print of LEGOs was done by junior Navjeet Singh and the monkey 3D print was done by senior Peter Arrabito.

A Virtual Enterprise class from Bethpage High School placed in the top of Long Island schools and will advance to the regional round. Their simulated business is called SuperNova, which is a training app for high school athletes. In the four years since the school implemented the Virtual Enterprise course, this is the furthest a class has gone in the competition. 

Virtual Enterprise is the culmination of the curriculum-based business courses at Bethpage High School. The course is available to junior and senior students and allows them to experience every aspect of business in a simulated environment.

During the past several years, Bethpage’s business program has steadily grown to include a wider variety of courses, including accounting, business management, personal finance and marketing. The classes focus on teaching students real-life skills and relating lessons to current events.

High school business teachers Nancy Simpson and Anthony Murray felt there was an opportunity to better prepare students for their futures in business. As veterans of the business world, they applied their skills and wisdom to expand the Bethpage business program, creating a robust list of offerings for students in grades 10-12.

“I think the Virtual Enterprise students’ success exemplifies how our broader business course offerings are fostering a solid foundation for students,” Mr. Murray said. “It’s making them more successful in these competitions.”

Typically, the Virtual Enterprise classes attend large-scale events to market and sell their products and compete with other classes from around the country and world. This year, students have been engaging virtually with thousands of firms to participate in competitions, trade shows and fairs. Recently, Sarah Ali from METAkey placed in the top 10% on Long Island in an elevator pitch competition in which she pitched her class's company in 60 second or less. 

"Virtual Enterprise to me is an enjoyable way to learn about the business industry," Sarah said. "As teenagers in high school, not many classes are offered that set you up for the real world. Virtual Enterprise has been such an amazing experience for me and I hope many students take advantage of this opportunity."


Overall, the three Virtual Enterprise classes placed in six different categories, including human resources, finance and marketing. They will now advance to the national competition in which they will present a video presentation to the judges.

BHS Students Place First in LISEF

Three students from Bethpage High School were the 2020 Long Island Science and Engineering Fair winners in the Earth and Environmental Engineering category. Maya Maciel-Seidman, Ruchitha Channapatna and Suchitha Channapatna created a robot that measures moisture levels in soil, which can be used to optimize the growth of crops in available farmland.

Maya, Ruchitha and Suchitha’s project was among 400 entries from throughout Long Island. They advanced to the International Science and Engineering Fair, which was held virtually last May. For this year’s fair, the group plans to evolve their moisture-sending robot to also read pH levels of soil.

“This group is beyond impressive,” science research teacher Chris Pollatos said. “Here in Bethpage, we foster a huge movement for STEM and these girls are shining stars of the program.”
