SoF Presents She Kills Monsters

 th-1

A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

Performed by SoF Middle School Students and Directed by Lisa Sobin.

Tickets can be purchased below or at the door.  Tickets are $5/students; $10/adults.

Our teams had a fantastic time and outstanding performance and qualified to the citywide competition, which will be held on April 17th with all the winning teams from the city boroughs.

Our seventh graders Elizabeth Appelbaum, Noe Humbert,  Himamsu Subedi, and Ahsanul Hoque have worked on a prototype that used data and data analysis in order to propose a solution to a local transportation issue.

Our HS seniors Violet Brachman, Valerie Capone, Ethan Ng and Samuel Keller have impressed the audience with their teamwork,  data analysis, user design, creativity and technical complexity. ( all part of the rubric)

In order to refine their prototypes, the students were able to collaborate with subject matter experts from NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission, Bureau of Environmental Surveillance and Policy Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Association for Neighborhood and Housing Development, Education & Criminal Justice from the office of the Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and more.

The day was filled with lots of fun as students also had the opportunity to present their research to each other and meet other students from the schools present at the event.

Several City Council members stopped by and talked to our students about their schools and asked them to be active in sharing with them data about their school lunch or whatever problem thy want to bring up.

Ben Kallos, a software developer,  Mark Levine, and Borough President Gale Brewer inspired out students with personal stories and advised them to continue learning about data and data analysis.

Hack League is a competition run by DOE and Open Data at three stages. The first stage happened in schools, in Computer Science classes during in January and continuing with March and April for the next rounds. Our students are looking forward to the citywide event.  Go SOF!
