KEARNEY STUDENTS TACKLE SOLUTIONS TO GUN VIOLENCE

Five Kearney students and two Kearney faculty members, Dr. Ralph Protano and Matthew Rosado, attended BaseCamp Expeditionaries this summer as Patricia Michel Scholars and Fellows. This two week program selects high-achieving students to invest time in researching the design of solutions to social impact challenges.

Bishop Kearney was the only all-girls school to participate in this unique program along with teams from Regis and Fordham Prep. They applied the essentials of design thinking, prototyping, teamwork and other 21st Century workplace skills. They were social entrepreneurs.

The program was held at a WeWork location and was run by Christian Talbot and Patrick Sillup. Along with Fordham Prep and Regis High School, we journeyed into the unknown as we raised questions and prototyped solutions to help others on the margins of society.
