    The Cosmetology students in Michele Pristina’s class at Milliken Technical Center recently used the visual power of special effects makeup to raise money for breast cancer awareness and research. Channeling their creativity while employing this specialized skillset, students produced out-of-the-ordinary looks on fellow classmates and members of the community for a donation of $5 a person for their fundraiser. Horror movie-worthy scars were the number one requested look, in addition to spectacular fantasy makeup. Milliken Technical Center is part of the Eastern Long Island Academy of Applied Technology, which is the career and technical education program of Eastern Suffolk BOCES.

  • Academy Students Practice Triage at Staged Accident

    Students Receive First-Account, Hands-On Training

    Academy students at the Milliken Technical Center recently participated in a collaborative event involving multiple programs to provide realistic, hands-on experience. A post-car accident scene was created so that Medical Assisting students could bandage victims and perform triage, and Law Enforcement could properly manage the multi-person casualty. Cosmetology students provided special effects makeup so accident victims looked the part, Auto Body students supplied the damaged cars, and Audio Production students videoed the live event. The Eastern Long Island Academy of Applied Technology is the Career and Technical Education Program of Eastern Suffolk BOCES and has campuses in Oakdale, Bellport, and Riverhead.

    The accident scene was staged in a parking lot at the school and involved a two-car collision (Auto Body students simply moved two cars in need of repair outside). Volunteer victims sporting special effects makeup positioned themselves in and on the cars. Some of the victims utilized prosthetic wounds for classmates in the Medical Assisting Program to bandage. One abdominal prosthetic squirted blood and featured exposed plastic intestines. Law Enforcement students who didn’t volunteer as victims worked the accident, taking statements from witnesses and arresting one of the drivers who attempted to flee. Audio Production students videoed the event with handheld and drone video cameras. Said Deborah Leedham, Medical Assisting teacher, “Cross collaboration among programs at the Academy makes it possible for students to experience project-based learning in ways they might not elsewhere. The chaos, noise, confusion, and screaming were all part of the triage experience in this lesson, in addition to applying the industry skills they’ve all learned. It wasn’t an authentic trauma scene, but it was a valuable stepping stone in their educations.”
