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 2018-2019 Council is as follows:
President: Izzy Vazquez Vice President: Olivia Johnson
Executive Board: Piper Gallivan - Chairman, Margaret Feng - Communications, Nectaree Thao - Historian, Ruquiya Egal - Secretary, Natalie Braga - Executive Board, Lia Wallace - Merchandising, Gabby Bell - Executive Board, Stephanie Hulander - Executive Board, Abigail Johnson - Event Coorindation
How often will we meet? 1x a month on Wednesdays
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.
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.
