LINCROFT: CBA HOSTS 1ST SCHOLARS PROGRAM

CBA Baldes-quadcopterMatthew Baldes was among the five members of the Christian Brothers Academy Class of 2016 who showcased their capstone projects during the school’s first-ever Scholars Program Colloquium on May 17. The CBA senior — who explained and demonstrated a model of his design for a quad copter, used to shoot video and to conduct search and rescue operations — joined fellow classmen Jonathan Alicea, Corbin Richardson, Anthony Sardella and Richard Stefanik in an evening exhibition of their top-ranked projects in the areas of engineering, music, drama and civics scholarship. Directed by history department chair Mr. Jeffrey Matson since the program’s inception in 2010, the Scholars Program offers select juniors a unique research-driven experience that continues throughout their senior year, when the scholars develop an independent project that permits them to explore in depth areas of individual interest under the direction of a personal mentor, from the CBA faculty or the private sector.
