Students in the P-Tech program at FHS participated in a variety of educational activities throughout the month of July. The group of students included members of the high school’s Class of 2018 who will be attending Farmingdale State College in the fall.

As part of the program, students visited BOCES Brookville Outdoor and Environmental Education Center and developed their problem-solving, communication, teamwork and leadership skills by engaging in a series of hands-on activities. In addition, students visited Farmingdale State College and attended lectures about renewable energy, as well as built a vehicle powered by a photo cell, a windmill to generate power, and a water wheel. Sessions also included visits to Operation Splash, Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve, Adventureland and tours of the Bay Park Water Reclamation Facility.

The P-Tech summer program was designed to provide students with the opportunity to make connections between academic concepts and “real world” applications.
