The Hillside Innovation Academy Software Development Program, facilitated by our consultant Drew Enterprises, LLC., held our 3rd Annual Hack-a-Thon on Saturday, April 13th. The theme of this year’s competition was “Teens in Crises." Scholars developed websites that provide information surrounding various topics of conflicts faced by teens as communicated via media outlets (news, online platforms, personal experiences, health organizations, etc.). 6 teams made it to the final round with the group Codigo Latino winning. Codigo Latino group included scholars Jeremy Quiros, Benjamin Balladares, Julian Silva, and Onyz Sanchez! The judges were impressed with this group as they incorporated a chatbox in their code, that provided the visitor with the ability to ask any question and receive a response as well as translate the webpage to Spanish. Congratulations on taking home the winning prize of $500 and certificates to all who made it to the final round. Excellent work Hillside Innovation Academy Scholars, Dr. Drew, and H.I.A. Principal, Dr. Silva! #hillsidenj #hillsidepublicschools #hackathon #newpride #newpathways #newpossibilities #coding

A special thank you to Dr. Eisenberg for coordinating HIAs viewing of the 2024 Solar Eclipse today in the courtyard. It was not only an educational experience but a humbling one, as it reminds us of the wonders of the world, often taken for granted. I am glad that our scholars were able to experience it. Thank you again Dr. Eisenberg for providing the glasses and to all of the staff who stayed after dismissal to monitor scholars.

Hillside Innovation Academy (H.I.A.) grade 8 scholars had the opportunity to visit Newark Glass Roots recently. On this Arts and STEM based trip, students had the opportunity to learn beadmaking through flameworking, using a blowtorch and colorful glass to sculpt their own beads! Next, they visited the studio's workshop to create tile mosaics. In preparation for the trip, they explored radial symmetry in art class and applied this mathematical concept by repeating their designs from a small sketch. Mosaics were then grouted back at school. Lastly, they visited the "Hot Shop" where a glass professional glass blower treated them to a demonstration, sculpting a glass ornament right before their eyes! For all parts of their experience, students worked with professional artists and learned about programs they can participate in at Glassroots including Wednesday free classes, the high school apprenticeship program, and summer camps! #hillsidenj #hillsidepublicschools #newpride #newpathways #newpossibilities #glassblowing
