With Technology, Seeing is Believing!

Over the last 2 years, Mar Elias High School’s science labs have been radically improved, thanks to generous grants through Pilgrims of Ibillin from F.I.S.H. Foundation, Inc., of Plainsboro, NJ.  One major grant for technology upgrades came from F.I.S.H. Foundation through the Clinton Global Initiative.  Pilgrims of Ibillin offers heartfelt thanks.  But the most important gratitude comes from Mar Elias teachers and students themselves:

THANK YOU! — From a Teacher:

Mr. Ehab Far, a Mar Elias High School science teacher, warmly thanks Pilgrims of Ibillin for providing the technology he needs to teach his students. “Before,” he said, “I used to have to make a drawing on the board and say to the students, “Imagine a piece of electronic equipment that looks like this…‟

Mr. Far illustrated on paper what he used to draw for his students to depict the lab equipment so he could verbally describe the result it produced. Now the students in his lab can observe directly using state of the art tools. He says with a laugh, “With religion, we praise believing without seeing, but with science you must see.”

And From a Student:

“I am being fully equipped with all that is needed for university life while I am still in high school. I tell my friends who graduated from MEEI about the labs we have now. They say that I have nothing to worry about when I am enrolled in university because of the simple fact that I’m already familiar with most of the equipment.”
