The New Rochelle High School chapter of the National Science Honor Society inducted 44 students and recognized 17 returning seniors in its recent annual induction ceremony.
The inducted students maintained a grade-point average of 85 or better in all science courses, including Advanced Placement courses, and completed 20 hours of community service in science. Returning seniors acted as mentors to new members, while also completing 10 hours of service. Students completed service through participation in the NR-Use program, peer tutoring, and volunteer opportunities in community-based organizations including the Glenwood Lake Association, Westchester County Parks, the New York Blood Center, and the School Construction Authority of New York City.
Science Honor Society members also connected with Trinity Elementary School students for a virtual lesson on the "reasons for the seasons," and participated in George M. Davis Jr. Elementary School’s Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Fair. Members every Wednesday participated in non-academic science activities, such as campus scavenger hunts, science bingo, and a science-themed costume contest. In addition, members presented science research, shared volunteer experiences, and held Q&As with guest speakers in STEM careers.
Juniors and seniors interested in applying to the Science Honor Society are welcome to attend the next informational meeting in September 2022.
