Stanners Proudly Present their Projects at the 2022 STEAM Expo

On Tuesday, April 26th, Ms. Edit Boral, Mr. Chris Autera '16, and the Computer Science and Engineering students hosted their annual STEAM Expo! Students, family members, faculty, and administration were all in attendance to support the hard work Stanners put into their projects. The event featured projects in app development, robotics, composing music in Python, 3D architectural design, quantum computing, and computer design. STEM Club member Samanta Correa ‘22 said that she is “happy Molloy is incorporating STEM into its community and is actively trying to get people involved.” She continued, “The expo is such a fun and open event that encourages students to express their creativity in any form they prefer - art, engineering, even coding.”

 

Displayed throughout the theater and library, Stanners showcased 3D designs of their dream homes, graphic design projects showing the importance of masks, apps that encourage health and safety, and robots that can potentially help humans to destress! Immanuel Chuks-Okah ‘22 created a Contactless Security Scanner, similar to a hotel key card. When asked why he chose this project, Immanuel stated, “During the era of Covid, I wanted to make something that would ensure we didn’t have to touch too many things, like multiple keys and knobs.” Dani Patel ‘23 wanted to combine her love for reading with her coding project, creating an app to suggest books for users to read next. She explained, “There are so many underrated, under-read books that I love and I wanted to make a platform to share them and suggest them to others.”

 

Judges included Molloy’s President Richard Karsten '81, Professor Christopher Malinowski (LIU Post), Dr. Des Flynn '97, Ms. Ya Ting Yang, backend programmer and alum Eric Mun ‘17, graphic designer Ms. Michele McGrade, and architect Judy Weeks. Hosting the STEAM Expo and creating connections with professionals across the industry is giving Molloy students the opportunity to fully embrace this exciting field and explore its wide ranging possibilities. The panel of professionals selected the best projects out of more than 150 entries across numerous categories. You can find a list of all of the winners here:

Ms. Boral, Chairperson of Molloy’s Computer Science and Engineering Department, shares, “I’m so proud of the 150 students for taking on this challenge and for participating in the STEAM Expo. This has been an outstanding and inspiring competition. Congratulations to all the participants and winners! Many thanks to the judges, faculty, communication, IT, and the Administration for finding the time to support and celebrate our students’ work and achievement! Without their help, this event would not have been possible.”
