An education at Yeshiva University High School for Girls is an education that students will take with them in their daily lives, long after they graduate. Some elective classes recently ventured out of the building to engage with curricular content in real-world settings. Mr. David Horstman‘s Engineering classes traveled to Google Headquarters in Chelsea for a program focused on encouraging women to enter the STEM fields. Students heard from a panel of Orthodox women who spoke about their experiences working for Google. Other topics of discussion were machine learning and voice/image recognition. Also visiting Manhattan were the juniors in Ms. Karine Shauli‘s Studio I class. At the Metropolitan Museum of Art, students saw firsthand some of the work of artists they have been recently studying. Students used guided questions to direct them through each room. Beginning with paintings by Renaissance artists such as Rembrandt and Titian, they moved onto more modern European artists, including Monet, Seurat, Degas, Cezanne, and Picasso. he tour stopped in the Modern and Contemporary section with pieces from Mondrian, Klee, Chagall, Dali, O’Keeffe, and Calder. Says Ms. Shauli, “Students were able to see how art changed stylistically through time and gain a greater appreciation for the great artists they studied as they saw the size and techniques used. Now students in Studio I will be able to apply what they learned and what they saw to create their next art projects.”
