EHS Art Department QR Code

In 2020/21, the EHS art department took a giant step forward in developing its own department website to showcase the work of its students during the pandemic while also creating a blog for arts announcements and community engagement and outreach. This website received a tremendous amount of attention via the Scarsdale Inquirer as a positive public web space for students to create and express themselves during the pandemic.

 

In 2021/22 , the EHS art department took the website even further by using a contemporary information delivery system in the form of its own custom QR code to direct students and the community in a very quick and concise fashion to updated galleries, course descriptions, and student testimonials prior to course selection season.  This innovative and updated approach brings students directly to the art course offerings in a dynamic fashion that showcases the power of technology and a variety of visual communication formats.

 

Please use the QR code below to view student artwork, read about the EHS art course offerings and stay up to date in our blog section for cultural news and happenings!

 

We will continue to populate site content throughout the spring!  Be sure to check in monthly for updated blog happenings and announcements!

Edgemont Robotics is a 7-12th grade team which has been entirely student-run throughout all its years of competing in FIRST’s Tech Challenge. FTC is a competition in which thousands of teams across the world compete in robotics, emphasizing values of innovation, collaboration, and professionalism.  Edgemont Robotics was founded in 2016 to focus on participating in the competition in addition to fostering STEAM skills across the entire school.

We have hosted a variety of online and in-person workshops for students both in and out of school teaching programming skills and other robotics fundamentals. This year our team had its most successful season, winning the Control Award and placing 3rd place for the Inspire Award at NY Excelsior Remote Qualifier which, for the first time in our history, directly qualified the team for the NY Regional Championship in Utica, New York. There, teams will compete for 2 spots directly into the FTC World Championship.

Last week the Regional Varsity Girls Ice Hockey Team (East Green Wave), we are a part of won the Section 1 Championship. Our own Brianna Chin is a part of that team.  You can read the Scarsdale Inquirer article here.

 

Yesterday, our Varsity Wrestling Team continued its outstanding season, adding to their Section 1 Division II Dual Meet Tournament Championship earlier this season, with the traditional Section 1 Division II Team Championship yesterday at Hendrick Hudson HS. The team was led by Section Champions Dhilan Patel (118 pounds), Sander Miller (145) and Noah Bernstein (152). But winning the team title took a collective effort as ten additional wrestlers from our squad made the podium, including nine that finished in the top three.
