Hillel Academy Graduate Wins Prestigious National Science Award
Hillel Academy graduate and Binghamton High School sophomore, Samantha Tuberman has won the National Emperor Science Award sponsored by the Public Broadcasting Service. Samantha is one of only 100 high school students nationwide to receive this prestigious award. The Emperor Science Award program is committed to helping all students that have a passion for science join the next generation of cancer researchers. Through this award program, 100 winning students from across the country will be paired with a university-level mentoring scientist to collaborate on an important cancer research project. Whether virtually, or in a lab, students will be able to connect with their mentors to develop valuable research, organization and communication skills. Sam will spend her summer working with Dr. Elizabeth Evans, a researcher from Vaccinex, a biopharma company in Rochester NY. Together they will explore immunotherapy as a treatment for cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.
Students and families are invited to visit Hillel Academy and join in classes during Registration for the upcoming academic year. Our teachers offer a creative, non testing-centered approach to the Common Core, augmented by art, music, Judaics, and special programs. Hillel Academy classes are capped at 12 students.
This year we are again offering Free Pre-K in our "Ganeinu" class. Ganeinu means our garden - and is a free full-week program at Hillel Academy. Ganeinu is a class for 4 year olds (by December) that introduces our youngest students to fun, social learning. Students learn the basics of the English and Hebrew alphabets, colors, shapes, and more. In Ganeinu students enjoy music, dance, and painting, as well as Judaics education!
