Uniondale High School scholars speak with spokesperson from the U.S. Army

Representatives showcase the variety of career opportunities available in the fields of STEM and robotics

Uniondale High School recently welcomed spokespeople from the U.S. Army who spoke to scholars about the large variety of career opportunities in the U.S. Army. Representatives talked about careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and robotics and about the importance of these specializations in how they have advanced the Army.

“We live in an ever-evolving technological world where every day there are breakthroughs,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Monique Darrisaw-Akil. “At our Super Science Saturdays, we teach our
elementary scholars the importance of robotic technology in everyday life. We also talk about how robotic technology is used in space and sea exploration, allowing us to learn about the world around us
without putting people in danger. At the high school level, we also teach the importance of robotics and A.I. technology, showing our scholars the many ways this advanced technology benefits our nation. From early elementary through senior year, we relay to our scholars the benefits of learning about robotics and coding to pursue future careers and how this technology will be ever present in their future.”

The Army brought some of the robots used in the field to showcase for the high school scholars, instructing them on how to operate the advanced technology. Scholars had the opportunity to practice their coding skills by racing the robots across the parking lot and coding robotic arms to pick up items. 

“The Uniondale High School Guidance Department makes it our mission to provide networking opportunities across a wide array of fields of study,” said Director of Guidance Stacie Reed. “Events like this are just one of the many ways we set our scholars up for success post-graduation.” 

For more information on upcoming scholarships, internships, camps, employment opportunities and other pertinent information, scholars are encouraged to read the bi-weekly “Knights News” published by the Guidance Department.
