Clubs

Movie Club meets on Thursdays from 3-4 pm. Students gather on a weekly basis to watch films and discuss imagery, themes, and different film styles. For more information, please contact Ms. Quinones at dquinones@energytechhs.org.

The Sustainability Club, also known as the Green Team, meets every Wednesday after school from 3-4 pm. We maintain and supervise the building’s recycling program, compete in city-wide energy competitions, collaborate with Solar One, and are currently working on a “Carton 2 Garden” project that will hopefully result in the creation of a functioning school garden. For more information, please contact Ms. Bartelucci at abartelucci@energytechhs.org.

Anime Club meets each Wednesday after school from 3-4 pm. We gather to watch and discuss episodes of our favorite anime shows, as well as play anime-influenced card games and video games. Shows we've watched include Fairy Tail, The Devil is a Part-Timer, and Sword Art Online. We also held a month-long Super Smash Bros 3DS tournament in November and we will be holding Vanguard and Smash Wii U tournaments this spring. For more information, please contact Mr. Davis at gdavis@energytechhs.org.

Programming Club meets on Wednesdays from 3-4 pm. Students learn Greenfoot, which teaches object orientation with Java. In this club, students create 'actors' which live in 'worlds' to build games, simulations, and other graphical programs. Greenfoot is visual and interactive. The actors are programmed in standard textual Java code, providing a combination of programming experience in a traditional text-based language with visual execution. For more information, please contact Mr. Folwell at nfolwell@energytechhs.org.

MOUSE Squad enables young people to have the kinds of rich, hands-on experiences with computers and other technology that are not available to most students during the school day. MOUSE Squad puts young people at the center of their future. Through hands-on learning they acquire new skills, like setting up a network connection, building a website, or editing a video, and share what they learn with their peers. This active learning approach helps young people develop the habits of mind—curiosity, focus and imagination—that sustain them as learners and leaders as they navigate a pathway to their future. This club meets on Thursdays from 3-4 pm. For more information, please contact Mr. Folwell at nfolwell@energytechhs.org.

Student Government meetings take place on Thursdays from 3-4 pm. Elections take place in the spring, and students learn about fair campaigns, public speaking, and collaboration to improve our school community. For more information, please contact Mr. Lutterbein at blutterbein@energytechhs.org.

History and Historical Film Clubs are offered to students in preparation for history Regents examinations, or who just want to learn more about history. These clubs take place after school. For more information, please contact Mr. Lutterbein at blutterbein@energytechhs.org or Ms. De Marco at ademarco@energytechhs.org.

Community Service Club meets every Wednesday from 3-4 pm. In this club, students raise money for local causes and charities, set up food drives to benefit hungry neighbors, and pursue many other ways to make our school and community a better place. For instance, we have collected 500 pounds of nonperishable food items for the City Harvest Food Drive, and have raised over $200 in pennies for donation through the Penny Harvest. In the winter of 2014, we ran a toy drive and wrapped presents for local families in need, and we also raised over $200 in five days for cancer research through a Valentine’s Day event. We are a very active club and we welcome anyone to attend who has a passion to serve others in the local community. For more information, please contact Ms. del Castillo at mdelcastillo@energytechhs.org.

Shakespeare Club participates in the annual Shakespeare Festival, and meets on Tuesdays after school. In this club, students work with a teacher and a teaching artist to develop and act out scenes from Shakespearean plays, which will ultimately be performing at the Lucille Lortel Theatre in the spring. Students learn the basics of theater and acting skills, and use these experiences to develop their own short productions. For more information, please contact Ms. Mohammed at tmohammed@energytechhs.org.

The Liberty Partnership Saturday Program offers students the opportunity to participate in exciting classes in topics such as Digital Photography, Latin Dance, the Art of New York City, SAT Prep, Engineering, and more. Energy Tech students participate alongside other local high school students on the LaGuardia Community College campus in this popular program. For more information, please contact Ms. Castillo at tcastillo@energytechhs.org.
