Old Rochester Regional High School Hosts ‘STEAM the Streets’ Assembly

MATTAPOISETT — Superintendent Michael S. Nelson and Principal Michael Devoll are pleased to share that Old Rochester Regional High School hosted its first STEAM the Streets assembly for students on Feb. 15.

STEAM the Streets is a nonprofit organization that aims to provide high schools with a deeper dive into the world of STEM- and art-related career paths through interactive programming. In collaboration with Mass Hire, the group encourages students to engage in career discovery by humanizing career fields through multimedia presentations.

“It’s important for our students to explore career paths that fit their unique strengths, and I’m excited we shared this opportunity with our students,” Superintendent Nelson said.

The ORRHS assembly, titled “This Can be You,” was designed to help students see themselves in a broad range of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics-related (STEAM) careers by pairing music and interaction with the presentation. High-demand careers were featured, including roles like food scientist, marine ecologist, automotive technology specialist, research assistant and electrical engineer.

The show was hosted by performer, musician and presenter Angel Diaz, also known as “DJ Anghelli.” The hour-long assembly was open to students in grades 10-12.

“We are thankful for our partnership with Mass Hire, which brought STEAM the Streets to our students,” Director of Guidance Lauren Millette said. “The exposure to careers in STEAM fields was presented in a fun and interactive way, motivating our students to realize that they can do anything they put their minds to.”

Added Principal Devoll, “Providing opportunities for students to learn about life after high school and all of the exciting career fields in STEAM is invaluable. We look forward to more events with Mass Hire.”
