  • STEM Signing Day

    Seniors planning to major in a STEM field at a Missouri college/university are invited to apply to be recognized at the Missouri STEM Signing Day Celebration on April 29, 2020. This celebration, organized by the Missouri Chamber Foundation’s Mathematics and Science Coalition, recognizes outstanding Missouri high school students who are inspired by science, technology, engineering and math and are dedicated to pursuing a STEM career pathway in college and beyond. Just like signing days for athletes, Missouri STEM Signing Day celebrates Missouri high school seniors as they sign a letter of intent to pursue a STEM degree program at a Missouri post-secondary institution. Students will be recognized for their STEM achievement by state officials, business leaders, coalition members and other special guests.

    With start-up funding contributed by The Boeing Company and supported by the Missouri business community, the program offers $1,000 scholarships to a minimum of 10 students to help them pursue their STEM education goals at a 2-year, 4-year or technical college of their choice. The funds are unrestricted and can be used for tuition, living expenses, books or technology.

  • SJA Alum in Action

    Alumna Ellen Lucchesi ’15 has carried the CSJ Charism and her STEM expertise to Bolivia as a part of the ETHOS, Engineers in Technical Humanitarian Opportunities of Service Learning program at the University of Dayton.

    The ETHOS program provides engineering students with “immersion experiences that change their lives as they use their technical know-how and community-building skills to improve the quality of life for others.”

    Ellen, who is a mechanical engineering student at University of Dayton, spent 10 weeks in La Paz, in the Andes mountains working with Funprobo, an organization that makes low-cost prosthetics for amputees unable to afford more advanced solutions. She assisted in producing prosthetic limbs, specifically through creating and assembling molds and feet, and through promoting the organization on social media. Ellen states that “working at Funprobo provided me with a transformed view of engineering, the world, and the human race."

    When I saw a child playing soccer with her new leg, it was truly a glimpse of God,” Ellen told University of Dayton trustees after presenting a documentary about her life changing experiences in La Paz. Plans are being made for Ellen to come back to St. Joe to speak with students about how her faith and STEM intersected during this experience.
