SNHS is a scientific organization that encourages and recognizes scientific and intellectual thought, advances the students’ knowledge of classical and modern science, communicates with the scientific community, aids the civic community with the comprehension of science, and encourages students to participate in community service and in turn encourages dedication to the pursuit of scientific knowledge that benefits all mankind. To be eligible, students must be in the last two years of secondary education, have and maintain a 3.0 GPA, be enrolled in at least one honors or upper level science class, maintain a B+ average across ALL science courses, and attend required lectures. Selected candidates will have to complete 1 scientific essay; complete a cross-teaching component with area middle schools; and participate in community service within the medical and/or scientific realm prior to induction into SNHS.

Science Olympiad consists of a team of students who participate in rigorous academic competitions indi-vidually and in pairs. Competitions are balanced between the various science disciplines of biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, and technology. Students in all grade levels that are interested in science or plan to pursue a career in science are encouraged to join. Being a part of the Science Olympiad team will allow students to have hands-on experience, pursue particular science interests, and possibly earn scholarships for competing at the state tournament. Competitions are on Saturdays, one in March, and one in April, with the April competition requiring a Friday night participation as well. Only students who can make the necessary time and commitments should apply to join the team.
