This past December, the Ronkonkoma Middle School Soul Singers performed holiday tunes at MacArthur Airport for all of the travelers going to visit their loved ones during the holidays. Under the direction of Nicole White, the vocal performers were joined by the RMS Select Band members, conducted by Stacy Stollberger and Elizabeth Piekut, as they filled the air will holiday favorites, such as “Frosty the Snowman” and “Let it Snow,” for the sixth year in a row. The event was part of the airport’s annual Holiday Concert Series.

Connections to Computer Coding

Eighth-grade students enrolled in Anthony Carbanaro’s and Nathan Giagios’s technology classes at Ronkonkoma Middle School were recently afforded the opportunity to tinker with the Arduino program, which is reinforcing computer coding skills of students throughout the nation.

Utilizing the physical programmable circuit board known widely as the “microcontroller,” the students plugged into their computers and ran software which allowed them to easily upload computer code to the board itself.

The Arduino Boards are fascinating pieces of technology which are able to read inputs such as light on a sensor, a finger on a button or a Twitter message, and turn it into an output, such as activating a motor, turning on an LED and publishing content online.

Careers in Coding

A number of Connetquot High School students recently paid a visit to the Ronkonkoma Middle School Computer Club in an effort to explain the many benefits that come along with following career paths surrounding computer coding.

Connetquot High School students Jack Russo, Joseph Vita and Dominick Manicone were kind enough to discuss their experiences with computer science and coding, including the many opportunities offered at the high school level and the competitions which take place both in and out of school.  

Additionally, they discussed their plans for the future, and what being part of the clubs and taking classes at the high school has done to help develop their career paths thus far.

Ronkonkoma Middle School Computer Club adviser Jackie Huston, Connetquot High School Computer Club and Programming Club adviser Robert Bachisin and Connetquot Central School District Director of Mathematics Louise Burger were also on hand to answer any questions that students asked.
