SHS Girls in Tech
Secaucus High School Girls Sharpen Tech Skills
SHS students Thessolanica DeLeon, Iqra Ahmed, Juliet Nowak and Hanna Faye Canonigo attended the Girls in Technology Symposium hosted by Hudson County Community College in Jersey City. There the young technologists were able to participate in various activities including coding and discussion of various displays. 

Thessolanica’s project “Snapshots of Time” focused on the evolution of how lives were captured by cameras that date back to as early as the late 1920s. Her project reflected on the changing models of cameras through time and how each produced varying resolutions of captured memories that were promised to be kept and treasured. 
Iqra, Juliet and Hanna presented “The Evolution of Solar 
Panels”, which illustrated the history of the intriguing invention as well as the potential for solar panels in the near future.
