STEM Field Trip

The 8th Grade, organized by Ms. Abreo, attended a trip to highlight the importance of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and its application in the world.  The event was held at one of the Saints facilities and had various companies and organizations such as NASA, the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Maritime Museum, Ochsner, Jefferson Parish Police,  and Acadian Medical Services, to name a couple. Students were able to see how the various things they learn here at Archbishop Shaw can be applied to the real world, the work place, and for the betterment of their neighbor. These applications can be either immediate, such as emergency medical care and police services to long term in bringing future innovations one step closer to actuality.
