Student Scientists Honored for Service and Achievement
By Anna T., news reporter
A celebration of the work they’ve put in and their love of science, Science National Honor Society inductees prepare to be officially inducted on March 3 at 7 p.m. in the Maine West Auditorium.
Science National Honor Society is devoted to forming and recognizing the future’s scientists in a high school environment, along with improving the world through science. This will be a formal ceremony taking roughly an hour.
“It’s an opportunity to reflect on all that we’ve been able to do throughout the year. It’s also a chance for talented students with an interest in science to be recognized,” Maine West science teacher and SNHS sponsor Philip Sumida said.
Throughout the year, students participated in activities and events like Science Day, Clean-up, Give Back, and ornament decorating for the Des Plaines tree lighting. This was all in a cooperative effort to improve the Maine West community and the world as a whole.
Amidst the pandemic, things became harder for SNHS as they pivoted to Zoom for meetings and activities. “This will be my first in-person one as a sponsor,” Maine West science teacher Jennifer Ellberg said. This induction means a return to normal for both past and future inductees.
