Resurrection College Prep Excitedly Prepares for 3rd Annual STREAM Symposium

Resurrection College Prep is eagerly gearing up for its much-anticipated STREAM Symposium, scheduled for Tuesday, April 23. This event marks a celebration of academic excellence and innovation, as students showcase their interdisciplinary projects to an exclusive audience of family and friends. The Symposium, hosted by Resurrection's pioneering STREAM Program, promises to highlight the remarkable achievements of its students, offering a glimpse into the transformative power of a holistic education.

Inaugurated in the fall of 2019, Resurrection's STREAM Program stands as a beacon of educational innovation. STREAM, an acronym for Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art, and Math, embodies the school's commitment to fostering well-rounded individuals equipped to navigate the complexities of the modern world. Unlike conventional STEM or STEAM models, Resurrection's STREAM curriculum integrates a Catholic worldview, emphasizing not only academic skill but also ethical and moral considerations in problem-solving.

The Symposium serves as a culmination of months of dedicated effort and intellectual exploration by students enrolled in the STREAM Program. From groundbreaking scientific research to innovative engineering projects, the showcased works reflect the students' unwavering commitment to addressing real-world challenges with creativity and ingenuity. Mary Scalfani, a senior, has embarked on a pioneering hydroponics research project aimed at tackling food insecurity and iron deficiency. Her endeavor exemplifies the program's emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration and social impact.

Similarly, Olivia Magruder's project examines the intersection of pop culture and economics, specifically the influence of Taylor Swift's "Eras" tour on the stock prices of Marriott, a prominent hotel chain. Olivia's innovative approach underscores the program's mission to encourage students to explore diverse fields and think critically about the world around them. Despite encountering challenges in data collection, Olivia's determination and analytical skills have propelled her toward groundbreaking insights, setting a precedent for future scholars.

Chris Hawker, a STREAM teacher at Resurrection, emphasizes the significance of the Symposium in nurturing students' talents and fostering a culture of innovation. "The STREAM symposium at Resurrection College Prep is crucial for our students as it provides a platform for them to showcase their talents, innovations, and collaborative efforts across science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics disciplines," says Hawker. "It fosters a culture of exploration, creativity, and critical thinking, empowering our young women to excel in fields traditionally underrepresented by females and prepare them for future academic and professional endeavors."

Since its inception, the STREAM Program has left a significant mark on the Resurrection community, impacting the lives of hundreds of students and reshaping the landscape of education. As the Symposium approaches, anticipation runs high, with students eagerly awaiting the opportunity to share their discoveries and insights with a captivated audience. With each project representing a unique blend of academic rigor and personal passion, the Symposium promises to be a testament to the transformative power of interdisciplinary learning.

As Resurrection College Prep prepares to open its doors to an exclusive gathering of family and friends, the STREAM Symposium stands as a testament to the school's commitment to academic excellence, innovation, and holistic education. In showcasing the remarkable achievements of its students, the Symposium not only celebrates their individual successes but also reaffirms Resurrection's mission to empower future leaders equipped with the knowledge, skills, and ethical foundation to shape a better world.
