New Science National Honors Society sparks interest with students

No it is not National Honor’s Society–it is Science National Honor’s Society.

During the summer of 2014, senior Mia Hamilton visited Brown University, where she spoke with people who gave her the idea of starting  a Science National Society at there school for students who are fascinated with science and math.

Hamilton started a petition around school to see if people would be interested in joining the program. Hamilton received good feedback from students and decided to take it to science teacher, Beth Schoonover.

They set up meetings, which will be held on Mondays, with the students who were interested.

Three weeks ago, a professor from Hiram University visited one of their meetings to give insight about science.

“Hopefully we can take trips to NASA and give exposure to jobs in science,” Schoonover said.

Juniors and seniors will be able to join this group as long as they meet the same requirements as NHS.

Senior Blaise Marchetti said, “I am in Science Olympiad and Academic Challenge and trying to expand my knowledge of paths I can take in research.”
