Science Club

2018 TCRSF
  • The Science Club at Highland Park is a way for students to experience science outside of the classroom and experiment with different subjects of interest. Students will be granted the opportunity to compete in science and engineering competitions, with the chance of scholarships and prizes. 

    Who are we? Students who want to do more science and explore the world in areas of their interest. Our 2020-2021 Council is as follows:

    President:    Natalie Braga                  Vice President: Anindita Rajamani

    Secretary: Katie Nguyen                    Communications: Lily Osmond               Chairwoman: Liv Rosten

    How often will we meet? 1x a month on Thursday (First Thursday of the month)

    What do you do in science club? At our meetings, we plan a cool experiment to conduct, and then we check in with one another about our projects. There are a few science-y field trips planned as well (Covid-19-pending).

    Why join? Science fair, and other scientific competitions, are amazing experiences that can only benefit your science career. Also, competing in these competitions is a great way to boost your resume! There are numerous opportunities for scholarships plus the connections you make can assist you down the road and when you apply to colleges.
