HARRISBURG (June 19) – The Bishop Shanahan High School (BSHS) Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Team was recently honored for their achievements by state Senator Andy Dinniman, state Representative Dan Williams, and Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf.

“STEM education is part of nearly every aspect of our lives and a strong background in STEM will put our students and young people on the right track for successful careers in a wide range of fields,” Dinniman, who serves as minority chair of the Senate Education Committee, said. “I want to congratulate the Bishop Shanahan Team on this tremendous achievement and thank school leaders and their team advisor for making this innovative and successful program available to students.”

The Shanahan team was named the Grand Champion of the fifth annual Governor’s STEM competition held in May. Competing against 26 other teams from across the Commonwealth, BSHS won the first place, as well as the overall Medical Category Award for its Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Lifesaving Assistant, a portable device that detects and monitors pressure and compression rates to assistant individuals giving CPR.

In addition, the team also emerged victorious upon entering the device in both the Chester County Intermediate Unit’s Innovative Inventions Competition and West Chester University’s Business Idea Competition.

In honor of their accomplishments, the BSHS team was recently invited to Harrisburg for an opportunity to meet the governor and a congratulatory luncheon where they also received special Senate certificates from Dinniman.
