The latest Scheck Hillel Design/STEM challenge was the Cardboard Challenge which culminated with the Cardboard Inventive Product Showcase on October 13, 2016. The school’s nearly 100 Grade 6 students were presented with topic choices of housewares, wearables and electronic device accessories. Over a course of three classes, each student then sketched a range of ideas, chose one to pursue and brought concepts to life with the Challenge’s recycled cardboard as well as materials like tape, fabric, pipe cleaners and plastic caps. Faculty also incorporated a lesson in building circuits with small LED light bulbs so students incorporated a light into their prototypes. This was the design process in action: research, discovery, ideation, solution development and iteration.

As a second phase of the project, students photographed their projects and created posters. They used the web-based program Canva to begin learning graphic design and understanding layout. Each student created a sales sheet to advertise and showcase his/her work. The showcase was a culminating event for students to present their work to peers.

“The students really impressed us throughout this Inventive Product Cardboard Challenge,” said Scheck Hillel’s Design Department Chair Elana Lazar. “These students will be part of changing and improving our future. Their ideas and creativity were endless, and their enthusiasm helped drive their Design Process.” 

Of the nearly 100 projects, some product examples include:

Waterproof laptop case by Noah Fincheltub

The Double Duo by Jacqueline Gorin: This dual purpose wall outlet will work and be a secure safe for you to hide some important things behind it. 

A shoe for the blind by Liat Kirsch: This shoe uses GPS and gives verbal directions based on the users location.

The Fable by Alberto Koenig: This idea is a flipping table that converts to a ping pong table. Alberto wrote: "The fable flips just by the click of a button. The beautiful table and the ping pong table are translucent, with an amazing iron or wood base."The "Drone Backpack" by

The Shoe on Wheels by Eduardo Novodzelsky: See his hand-drawn sketch in the Showcase's album.

Hologram Watch by Haley Scheck: This watch has a hologram so it can be used for Facetime, to take photos and watch movies.

The Seg Clean by Moises Sutton: This is a segway meets vacuum cleaner to make cleaning fun again.

This Design/STEM team was led by a collaboration of faculty members: Mrs. Lazar along with design teacher Mrs. Sabrina Ferster and Dr. John Suarez, Director of Curriculum. Elements of Scheck Hillel’s STEM curriculum begin as early as Lower School and then integrate into a comprehensive program of studies for Grades 6-12.

Scheck Hillel Community School’s Segulah Chapter of the National Honor Society welcomed its 2016-2017 inductees September 27.  

Private and public school chapters across the United States and in more than 70 other countries induct accomplished students based on scholarship, service, leadership, character and citizenship. To be inducted into Scheck Hillel’s National Honor Society, students in Grades 10-12 must hold a very high GPA and earn community service hours. Though achievements like this are common in Scheck Hillel’s college prep program, these students are far from typical in today’s world. Scheck Hillel is proud of its talented, dedicated, fine students and congratulates their families for instilling the core values and character that guide global citizenship and enduring Jewish identity.
