     The Wyckoff Fire Department is now on the cutting edge of firefighting technology, thanks to three enterprising young inventors.

    High school sophomores Francesco “Cesco” Ferrara, Ben Lin and Drew Cochran recently donated a drone with a carbon monoxide sensor to the fire department, believed to be the first volunteer force in Bergen County with the equipment. The students began the project as eighth-graders in the Wyckoff Extended Learning program at Eisenhower Middle School.

    Several students excitedly raised their hands and immediately began molding the dirt on the tables in front of them into the shape of a shoreline, most unconcerned about their muddied hands. It was a hands-on science lesson, all right, which is driving the new state science standards.

    Washington School teachers are piloting the curriculum which will be mandatory next year with the assistance of an outside consultant and in-house K-5 instructional coach Stacey Linzenbold.

    Carolina McAuley, president of the foundation, said the funds went toward purchases for the new Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) lab planned for Eisenhower Middle School and makerspaces at each of the four elementary schools: Washington, Coolidge, Lincoln and Sicomac.

    "At the middle school, the donation assisted in providing some of the furniture for the Innovation [STEM] Lab along with some 3D printers, among other things," McAuley said. "At the elementary level the donation assisted in creating maker spaces at each school."
