As Catholic school students head back to the classroom Thursday, one all-girls school in Woodlawn is starting the school year with a brand new science lab. The new state-of-the-art laboratory got a special blessing from Timothy Cardinal Dolan.
Dolan opened the new science room at Saint Barnabas High School with a blessing. The new room replaces an aging 60-year-old chemistry laboratory at the all-girls Catholic school.
This new lab is for the STREAM center, which means science, tech, robotics, engineering, art and math, and crosses all disciplines.
The new center was a gift by Mozilo family in memory of Phyllis Grace Mozilo. The Mozilo Family Foundation says the $150,000 STREAM center helps young woman, particularly in the Bronx, to pursue their dreams in science, math and engineering.
Emma Brannigan is excited to begin her senior year with a new science lab that she says will help her stay competitive in her chosen field.
"This beautiful lab is allowing girls my age to extend their knowledge in the science field and I'm really excited to do it because I'm taking AP computer science and I'm going learn how to code in the lab," Brannigan says.
