-May 2013, students of the IEEE Student-Club of BRHS submitted a proposal for funding a Digital Literacy Project, to IEEE-EPICS. This project would allow a Cyber-Classroom to be established in a rural village in India. The grant was approved by IEEE members at the IEEE Headquarters. Students from the iSTEM Club traveled to India during the summer 2013, and successfully implemented this Digital Literacy Project in the village of Paushi, West Bengal. This was the first IEEE-EPICS funded project that dealt with Digital Literacy in rural areas.

-On March 9th, 2013, students of the IEEE Student-Club of BRHS presented a paper at IEEE’s 2013 Integrated STEM Education Conference held at Princeton University. The paper focused on the connection between service learning and the STEM fields. The paper included references to the EPICS/EPICS High programs, which our iSTEM Club has implemented during the 2012-2013 school year.

-On March 9th, 2012, students of the IEEE Student-Club of BRHS presented a paper at IEEE’s 2012 Integrated STEM Education Conference held at TCNJ(The College of New Jersey), and held in conjunction with the Trenton Computer Festival. The paper focused on the ever-growing field of Cybersecurity and its relationship to STEM. It also discussed the future of Cybersecurity from a high school
student’s point of view.

On April 2 2011, students of the IEEE Student-Club of BRHS took part in giving a presentation at IEEE’s 2011 Integrated STEM Education Conference at TCNJ(The College of New Jersey). STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics; the key pieces for the future of innovation in the world. The presentation was about the history of computer programming, a student’s views on programming, and how the use of computer programming is an important tool in the fields of engineering and technology; two of the components of STEM.
