Kassem Al Huiseen, an alumni of MHS, made the local news!

Kassem Al Huiseen, an MHS alumni, made the local news this past summer. (sorry for the late post) He and his classmates at Bergen Community College, have reached a project milestone. They have assembled and tested an electric vehicle drive train. As you may know I am the f actuality adviser on this project and I am very proud of their work.

Having an electric vehicle project at a college is becoming more common as we see STEM programs increase in participation. I would attribute this excitement to the STEM programs being "Hands on" and open to diverse majors. Building projects with their hands gives students a chance to get excited about an engineering career.

Here is a link to the article... (FYI the article was written by an MHS alumni as well!)
