Science National Honors Society Induction

On January 30, 2024, there were 39 elite science students inducted into Science National Honors Society (SNHS).

In the club, students help to spread the word of sciences and volunteer to make the environment a better place. SNHS members complete campus cleanups, participate in community service events, and attend science related events.

At the induction, there were three experiments that demonstrated the different AP sciences. After the last experiment was completed, the inductees got to turn in their beakers and get their certificates. 

Unlike most other honor society induction ceremonies, this one was unique. The format of most ceremonies is the same: you walk across the stage, sign the book, receive your awards, and the ceremony ends soon after. Nevertheless, since the honor society now has all-new officers and sponsors, we made the event enjoyable for everyone. Weeks were spent by the officers organizing and planning the ceremony; we developed three scientific demonstrations (based on the three core sciences), in which the inductees were able to take part. Witnessing the success of our efforts come to pass when the members were admitted was truly fulfilling.
