BISHOP BRADY HIGH SCHOOL ANNOUNCES NEW COURSE, CLUB AND PROGRAM!!
Bishop Brady High School will roll out a new Robotics course in the fall of 2018. Following the tremendous success of our three Robotics Teams, a semester elective course, Robotics I, will be implemented for students in grades 9-12. Based on the educational standards of the FIRST robotics program, the course will integrate science, mathematics, engineering and technology with research, design, project management and communication skills. Students enrolled in the course will have the option of becoming members of one of the Robotics Teams, although that is not a requirement of the course. A second course, Robotics II, is planned for the following year.
The Drone and RC Flight Club is taking shape under the leadership of Bishop Brady school counselor Jeff Dailey. Designed for students with a passion for remote control flying, club meetings will include the following topics: new technologies, legal issues, recreational vs commercial drone use, drone racing, preparing for the Part 107 exam for drone usage, and video documenting.
In addition, following an ever-growing trend of students opting for another year of preparation before enrolling in college full time, we are pleased to unveil a Post Graduate Program beginning in the fall of 2018. Students who have graduated from high school would be eligible to enroll in a PG year at Bishop Brady. With a full program of honors, AP and dual enrollment courses, students will have ample opportunity to bolster their academic preparation with additional rigorous coursework and can begin to earn college credits in a strong, supportive community. They will also have time to improve their standardized test scores or gain additional leadership skills. For more information about Post Graduate options, please contact Principal Andrea Elliot to schedule an appointment.
